As I explained to the House on 21 October, the US Embassy told the FCO on 13 September that the individual concerned would be leaving the country imminently unless the UK had strong objections. We duly and immediately objected in clear terms and have done so ever since. When the FCO followed up with the US Embassy on 16 September, they informed the FCO that the individual had left the UK the previous day. The FCO informed Northamptonshire Police the same day.
