Ministry of Justice written question – answered on 1st June 2022.
To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, what his policy is on the circumstances under which voluntary deportation to countries of origin is the appropriate course of action for people serving indeterminate sentences of Imprisonment for Public Protection in the UK.
The Tariff-Expired Removal Scheme (TERS) is a mandatory scheme under which all foreign national prisoners serving indeterminate sentences will be considered for removal from the UK once their tariff expires.
This scheme is jointly administered with the Home Office and decisions to approve or refuse a removal under TERS are authorised by the Public Protection Casework Section in HMPPS on behalf of the Secretary of State.
Further information about the scheme can be found on gov.uk: The Tariff-Expired Removal Scheme (publishing.service.gov.uk).
