To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will give details of the number of complaints received by the passport office in London for 1987, 1986 and 1985 where the passport office has lost original birth certificates.

I regret that the information requested is not available. In the comparatively rare instances when birth certificates submitted in support of passport applications go astray within the passport offices, replacements are provided at no cost to the applicant.
