Dear HM Passport Office,

I would like to know how many passports the UK passport office has issued to Algerian female nationals who have obtained their UK nationality under their married name.

Also I would like to know how many passports you have issued to Naturalised UK citizens under their married names when they have not been able to change their maiden name in their original passport issued by the original government.

Yours faithfully,
