Mrs Theresa May - Home Office

On 5 February 2015, I announced in Parliament, through a Written Ministerial Statement, the commencement of a triennial review of the Police Advisory Board for England and Wales. I am pleased to announce the completion of the review.

The Police Advisory Board provides independent advice to the Secretary of State on general questions affecting the police.

The review concludes that the functions performed by the Police Advisory Board are still required and that it should be retained as a Stakeholder Group. This is an administrative change in its classification that better reflects the way the body is constituted and provides advice. The Police Advisory Board is, therefore, no longer classified as a Non-Departmental Public Body. The report makes a further five recommendations that will be implemented shortly.

The full report of the review of the Police Advisory Board can be found on and copies have been placed in the Libraries of both Houses.

James Brokenshire - Home Office

The Government has decided not to opt in to a Council Decision (12137/15) authorising the opening of negotiations on an agreement between the European Union and the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan (hereafter referred to as Jordan) on readmission.

EURAs ensure reciprocal procedures for the identification, documentation and return of persons illegally entering or remaining in EU Member States. We decide whether to participate in EURAs on a case by case basis, depending on the priority we attach to the country concerned in terms of numbers of immigration returns and the degree to which we enjoy a good bilateral relationship with that country.

Jordan is not an immigration returns priority for the UK (there were only four enforced returns from January to September 2015), and our returns process is excellent; Jordan is a country to which we return on EU Letters (this is easier because we do not need to obtain a travel document if we have strong supporting evidence of nationality). We would not enjoy an operational advantage if we were to change our bilateral arrangements for conducting returns to Jordan.
