To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, in what circumstances a person liable to be arrested for deportation is notified in advance that they will be arrested.

Any offender liable to deportation who has been bailed or released on restrictions from immigration detention and who fails to comply with the conditions of their release may be liable to arrest under paragraphs 24(1)(a) or 33(1)(a) of Schedule 2 of the Immigration Act 1971.

Individuals are advised of the potential for arrest and detention to enforce removal from the UK if they do not voluntarily depart when they have no lawful basis for stay or at any point if they are not compliant with conditions of stay.

No advance notification will be given in respect of when an arrest is planned.
