Asylum: Islamic State

Question for Home Office

UIN HL6121, tabled on 9 February 2022

To ask Her Majesty's Government how many victims of Daesh have been granted asylum in the UK since 2014; and how many of these belonged to religious minorities in the countries they left.

The Home Office cannot identify how many victims of Daesh have been granted asylum in the UK since 2014 nor can we identify how many of these victims belonged to a religious minority. This data could only be obtained at disproportionate cost because it would require a manual search through individual records.

However, the Home Office publishes figures on the number of people who have been granted asylum in the UK. This data can be found attached.
