Passports: Interviews

Volume 487: debated on Thursday 29 January 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many applicants had been refused a passport as a result of decisions consequent on an interview carried out at a passport interview centre by the end of 2008. (251643)

There have been no applications refused yet as a direct result of a confirmation of identity interview. As the main function of the interview is to act as a deterrent to those attempting to assume another identity, we expect the number to remain low.
