Bishop of St Albans asks Government about deportations to countries where death penalty might be used

On 13th November 2018 the Bishop of St Albans, Rt Revd Alan Smith, received a written answer to a question on the death penalty:

The Lord Bishop of St Albans: To ask Her Majesty’s Government how many individuals have been deported from the UK to countries where people can be sentenced to death without a death penalty assurance being sought since 2001.

Baroness Williams of Trafford: Home Office policy is not to deport foreign nationals from the UK if to do so would breach the UK’s international obligations under the European Convention on Human Rights.
