Chris Law – 2016 Parliamentary Question to the Home Office

The below Parliamentary question was asked by Chris Law on 2016-06-24.

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what her Department’s policy is on over-booking flights chartered for people being forcibly removed from the UK.

James Brokenshire

Charter flights are routinely overbooked to ensure the flight is fully utilised and delivers value for money. We reassess attrition rates for each flight on a monthly basis to ensure the number of individuals booked onto the flight who ultimately do not travel is kept to a minimum.
