Greg Mulholland – 2014 Parliamentary Question to the Home Office

The below Parliamentary question was asked by Greg Mulholland on 2014-06-09.

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, how many female genital mutilation cases her Department has been made aware of in each year since 2012; and in how many such cases those involved were either deported or threatened with deportation.

Information on the basis of claim for asylum is not centrally recorded, and the information requested in the Rt. Hon. Member’s question could only be obtained through a manual search of individual case files. This would exceed the cost limit.

As we do not centrally record the information requested, we are unable to obtain the data for the number of people, whose claim involved female genital mutilation, that were deported or threatened with deportation.
