Written Question
Visas: Public Order Offences
Thursday 23rd May 2024

Asked by: Lord Bishop of Hereford (Bishops - Bishops)

Question to the Home Office:

To ask His Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answer by Lord Sharpe of Epsom on 8 May (HL4028), why they do not keep records on individuals who are not British citizens who have had their visitor or other visas rescinded because of criminal activities associated with public order offences since 7 October 2023.

Answered by Lord Sharpe of Epsom - Parliamentary Under-Secretary (Home Office)

The Home Office cannot provide a breakdown of the reasons why a British citizen would have their visa rescinded without conducting a manual review of all case files where a visa has been cancelled.

Undertaking such a review would incur a disproportionate cost to the public purse.
