To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, on how many occasions the UK accessed information from Europol's European Migrant Smuggling Centre in each year since that centre's creation.

Answer (Brandon Lewis)

Intelligence exchange between UK law enforcement and Europol is well-established and routine, including on organised immigration crime. The National Crime Agency and Immigration Enforcement also support Europol with seconded staff, including within the European Migrant Smuggling Centre (EMSC), which incorporates JOT Mare. This cooperation has and continues to assist UK efforts to tackle organised immigration crime impacting on the UK.

However, the data requested is not held centrally and can only be obtained at disproportionate cost.
