Gwrthodwyd y cais gan Home Office.

Dear Home Office,

Could you please publish, or let me know if there is already published, a dataset of all people who have claimed asylum in the UK since the year 2000 listing the total numbers of people each year by country of origin. I would like to see total figures for asylum claimants by country of origin for each year.

I know that the Home Office publishes quarterly asylum statistics, but I cannot find a full dataset for asylum statistics for all years since 2000 listing the countries which asylum claimants come from. Please can you let me have one dataset with these statistics or tell me where I can find this online?

Yours faithfully,

John Lubbock
