HC Deb 24 October 1986 vol 102 c1013W
Mr. Freeson

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if Her Majesty's Government propose to ratify the Council of Europe convention on extradition; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Mellor

The white paper "Criminal Justice: Plans for Legislation" (Cmnd. 9658) explained that the proposals for extradition law reform would, if enacted, enable the United Kingdom to become a party to the convention.
