Volume 475: debated on Thursday 1 May 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department with reference to the answer of 5 February 2007, Official Report, columns 670-1W, on Iraq, how many Iraqi nationals have been allowed entry into the UK while travelling with G-series passports since January 2007; how many have been granted entry using other passports issued by the Iraqi authorities; and what information her Department holds on the number of Iraqi citizens not allowed entry into the UK, broken down by type of passport. (201949)

Information relating to the breakdown by type of document of applications for entry made by Iraqi nationals is unavailable. The United Kingdom Border Agency does not routinely collect the passport details of those individuals granted entry to the United Kingdom. Information relating to the passport details of those Iraqi nationals who have been refused entry to the United Kingdom could be obtained only at disproportionate cost.
