The Government is absolutely committed to removing Foreign National Offenders from the UK, and 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.

Since 2010, we have removed almost 50,000 Foreign National Offenders from our prisons, immigration removal centres and the community, with more than 5,000 removed in 2018/19.

Providing the information requested would require a manual check of individual records which could only be done at disproportionate cost.

The Home Office does publish quarterly statistics on the numbers of Foreign Nationals removed from the UK. This data can be found by accessing the following https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/immigration-statistics-year-ending-june-2019/list-of-tables
