Any foreign national who comes to our country and abuses our hospitality by breaking the law should be in no doubt of our determination to deport them. More than 40,000 Foreign National Offenders have been removed from the UK since 2010, and in the last financial year a record number of over 6,300 were removed.

The Ministry of Justice, HMPPS, and HMCTS do not hold the information requested in the PQ. Home Office have confirmed that as ‘Nationality’ is not a mandatory field on the Police National Computer (PNC) the Home Office cannot provide the information requested in the PQ.
