Section 37: Saving for powers to remove a person from the United Kingdom

117.This section ensures that a travel restriction order shall not prevent a person’s removal from the United Kingdom where it is ordered by the Secretary of State or by the courts. There are a number of circumstances where this might apply: deportation and extradition are examples. These various statutory powers will be listed in a statutory instrument which will be subject to the negative resolution procedure. Normally, where a person is removed under this section, removal will be permanent and there is no need for the banning order to remain in force. The provision in sub-section (2) is to cover circumstances where, following an offender’s temporary removal (e.g. to give evidence in criminal proceedings overseas), he or she is returned to the United Kingdom.
