HC Deb 19 March 1997 vol 292 c598W
Mr. Peter Bottomley

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if a category A inmate awaiting determination of extradition proceedings can be held or apply to be held in Northern Ireland. [20367]

Miss Widdecombe

No. The Extradition Act 1989 makes no provision for a separate jurisdiction for Northern Ireland. Under section 9 of the Extradition Act, the court of committal can only remand a person in custody to a prison in England and Wales.
