To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, how many European Arrest Warrant requests made by (a) the UK to each other EU state and (b) each other EU member state to the UK have been rejected as not valid in each year since 2010.
Answer (Brandon Lewis)
Between 21 July 2014 and 31 March 2017 the National Crime Agency refused to certify 508 European Arrest Warrants on the grounds of disproportionality or dual criminality.
The NCA does not hold figures prior to the 2014 reforms made to the European Arrest Warrant, which came into effect on 21 July 2014.
The NCA does not hold equivalent figures for EU member states.
