HC Deb 09 November 1999 vol 337 c485W
Dr. Tonge

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what plans Her Majesty's Government have to enter into bilateral agreements under Article 98 of the International Court Statute which would prevent the extradition of nationals to(a) the court and (b) a third country. [97828]

Mr. Hain

We have no plans to enter into new bilateral agreements which would prevent the surrender of British nationals to the International Criminal Court under Article 98 of the Court's Statute. Article 98 relates to surrender of persons to the International Criminal Court; it does not relate to extradition to a third country.
