Dear HM Passport Office,

Please provide the following information:

1. Number of renewal and number of first time applications since 2015 where UK passport was refused to the applicants who at the time of application were UK citizens (and not dual nationals) on the grounds of the failure of those applicants to satisfy identity requirements set out in Royal Prerogative as “One name policy” (rather than on the grounds of Identity Documents Act 2010).

2. Number of renewal and number of first time applications since 2015 where UK passport was refused to the applicants who at the time of application were UK citizens and dual nationals, on the grounds of the failure of those applicants to satisfy identity requirements set out in Royal Prerogative (rather than on the grounds of Identity Documents Act 2010).

3. Number of renewal and number of first time applications from UK citizens with dual nationality since 2015 where: the applicants were holding, have held or could obtain in the future a passport issued by another country and under exceptional circumstances, described in Sections 6.5 to 6.7 of the Annex A: Use of names in passports to the HMPO Passport policy (IIPG, August 2016), a UK passport was issued under the discretion of HMPO.

4. Number of applications from married or civil partner UK citizens since 2015 who were not dual nationals at the time of the application and who wished to use their spouse’s/civil partner’s surname and their birth name or legal name prior to the marriage/partnership, where a passport observation page was endorsed with “A holder is also known as [birth or legal surname]” (as per Section 7.4 of the Annex A: Use of names in passports to the HMPO Passport policy IIPG, August 2016).

Yours faithfully,

Johan Jakobson
