HC Deb 30 November 1987 vol 123 c396W
Mr. Gow

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department on how many occasions, in each of the past five years, the Government have been prevented from seeking extradition from the Republic of Ireland because the Republic has not acceded to the European convention on the suppression of terrorism.

Mr. John Patten

No United Kingdom warrants have been returned unexecuted from the Republic of Ireland in the last five years on the basis that the offences concerned were regarded as political.
