To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, when he expects the owners of the multi-agency public protection guidance to remove references to the UK Border Agency.
Answer (Mr Sam Gyimah)
The MAPPA Guidance is currently under review. References to the UKBA are primarily contained within the Duty to Co-operate Agencies and Foreign National Offenders chapters. My officials have redrafted both of these chapters and references to UKBA have been removed. As with other chapters, officials are consulting interested parties on proposed revisions to these two chapters and are currently awaiting comments from the Home Office Immigration Enforcement. Once the consultation has been completed, officials will seek approval from and on behalf of the Secretary of State for the amended chapters to be published.
