Asylum Seekers

David T.C. Davies: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many failed asylum seekers were deported after having completed a community service order in each of the last five years. [104542]

Mr. Byrne: The information requested is notheld centrally by the immigration and nationality

directorate and to provide it would involve an individual examination of case records at disproportionate cost.

Damian Green: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department which countries refuse to issue return travel documents to failed asylum seekers due for removal from the UK. [106772]

Mr. Byrne: The Home Office does not disclose the immigration status of immigration offenders when applying for return travel documents to foreign Governments. I am therefore unable to indicate whether any countries might refuse to issue documents on these grounds.

Damian Green: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many failed asylum seekers (a) returned voluntarily and (b) were returned forcibly between 1 January 2006 and 30 September 2006 to (i) Democratic Republic of Congo, (ii) Eritrea, (iii) Iran, (iv) Sudan and (v) Zimbabwe. [106773]

Mr. Byrne: The following table shows the number of principal asylum applicants removed from the UK in the first three quarters of 2006, broken down by type of removal and destination.

It is not possible to say at what stage in the asylum process people are at the time of their removal, because those departing voluntarily can do so at any stage.
