Stuart C. McDonald – 2016 Parliamentary Question to the Ministry of Defence

The below Parliamentary question was asked by Stuart C. McDonald on 2016-01-06.

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, what plans the Government has to attempt to remove or deport refugees and asylum seekers at the the UK Sovereign Base Areas in Cyprus to third countries.

Penny Mordaunt

Under Sovereign Base Areas legislation, people whose asylum claims fail are liable for deportation. Some applications for asylum in Cyprus are still being processed.

We will seek to deport those who have not claimed asylum or have had their application rejected.
