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.
24 March 2017
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.
