U.K. Plans to Return Irish Prisoners to Serve Terms in Ireland

The U.K. is planning to deport Irish citizens serving prison sentences in Britain to finish their terms in Ireland, Prime Minister David Cameron said.

He told lawmakers that he will ask Justice Secretary Ken Clarke to “see if we can do better” than the previous Labour government, which blocked a proposal to send Irish prisoners back to their home country.

“We are looking at how we can transfer prisoners who are foreign nationals from the United Kingdom to other countries,” Cameron said in response to a question in the House of Commons in London today.

“The previous government said it would not routinely support the deportation of Irish prisoners from the United Kingdom,” he said. “I’m going to ask my right honorable friend, the justice secretary, to see if we can do better.”
