No Home Office or other Government official was involved in signing a European Arrest Warrant for the parents of Ashya King. A European Arrest Warrant is issued by a judge, on application by a constable or appropriate person, in this case, the Crown Prosecution Service.

The Home Office does not hold information on what expenditure has been incurred by UK police forces in the search for the parents of Ashya King.

Any costs incurred are a matter for the individual forces involved.
