We are aware of having received two requests for assistance on behalf of three Iraqi nationals who left Iraq after threats of violence because of their work as interpreters with the British Army (one joint letter received in our embassy in Damascus, and one request received in our embassy in Cairo). However, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office does not hold a central record of this information. To answer this question accurately officials would need to contact all of our overseas posts, which would incur disproportionate cost.
As I said in my response to my hon. Friend on 23 April 2007, Official Report, column 914W, all requests for assistance are dealt with on a case by case basis, taking account of individual circumstances.
