Question for Home Office

UIN 68768, tabled on 21 March 2017

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, how many people with dependants who have been granted leave to remain in the UK had a no recourse to public funds condition attached to their leave in (a) 2014-15 and (b) 2015-16.

The published statistics on grants and refusals of extensions of leave by category can be found in table ex_01_q in the Immigration Statistics release.

The latest release Immigration Statistics October - December 2016, is available for download at:

https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/immigration-statistics-october-to-december-2016 with the extensions tables at https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/593024/extensions-q4-2016-tables.ods

The published statistics do not differentiate between applicants with dependents and those without and so cannot accurately answer the MP’s question.
