To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what assessment she has made of the effect of the potential loss of access to the European Arrest Warrant on the UK's ability to easily extradite those who have committed crimes.

Answer (Brandon Lewis)

The UK continues to work closely with Member States to execute European Arrest Warrants.

The Government will look to establish a new relationship with the European Union that includes practical arrangements on matters of law enforcement cooperation to tackle cross-border crime and to keep our people safe.

The details of our new relationship will be subject to negotiations and it is too early to speculate at this stage what it may look like.
