Question for Home Office

UIN 167330, tabled on 11 March 2021

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, how many Leave to Remain private life applications were processed within six months in (a) 2019 and (b) 2020.

Private life is an element within Family and Private Life applications, which is collectively captured as part of the data referred to as “HR Complex” here;

Private Life is not recorded as a discrete category of application and therefore it is not possible to separate this element out.

We are unable to provide the number of Private Life applications processed within six months during 2019 and 2020 because to do so would result in publication of unassured data.
