To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department on how many occasions (a) he and (b) his predecessors have used the power to revoke British citizenship in each of the last 10 years. (116313)

My right hon. Friend has used the power once, in July 2006. That decision is now subject to appeal. One of his predecessors gave a person notice in February 2003 that he intended to use the power against him. That intention is also the subject of an appeal which has been delayed by the intervention of criminal proceedings.
