Lotte Smith made this Freedom of Information request to Home Office

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, Home Office should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear Home Office,

I write to you regarding the charter flight to Jamaica of September 7th, chartered by the Home Office.

With what documentation were the 42 people deported or removed via this charter flight?

Please provide the number of the 42 people deported or removed for each:
1) Removed/deported via an Emergency Travel Document issued via a meeting with the Jamaican High Commission.
2) Removed/deported via an Emergency Travel Document issued without a meeting with the Jamaican High Commission.
3) Removed/deported via a valid Jamaican passport.
4) Removed/deported via an expired Jamaican passport.
5) Removed/deported via an EU letter.
6) Removed/deported without an expired or valid passport, and without an Emergency Travel Document. If they were removed via a type or form of documentation - or anything else that allowed for their removal/deportation - please state this and the type of documentation or otherwise form.

If documentation for removal/deportation of the 42 people was not sought or collected on an individual basis, but rather collective documentation was issued by Jamaica for the chartered flight as a whole then please state this.

Yours faithfully,

Lotte Smith
