HC Deb 15 September 2003 vol 410 c589W
Dr. Tonge

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what representations he has received from Taiwan regarding Mr. Andrew Wang. [129762]

Mr. Rammell

It is the Government's policy not to make public announcements on individual extradition requests that may or may not have been received. This is to ensure that any on-going investigations by relevant law enforcement agencies are not jeopardised in any way.

However, the UK is not, at present, able to establish extradition arrangements with the Taiwanese authorities as HMG does not recognise Taiwan as a state.
