Dear​ ​​Kevin​ ​Bridges​, 
I​ ​refer​ ​to​ ​your​ ​request,​ ​where​ ​you​ ​asked: 
I​ ​would​ ​like​ ​to​ ​ask​ ​for​ ​details​ ​of​ ​any​ ​cost​ ​analysis​ ​that​ ​has​ ​been​ ​done​ ​to​ ​compare​ ​the​ ​cost 
of​ ​giving​ ​EU​ ​nationals​ ​living​ ​in​ ​the​ ​UK​ ​prior​ ​to​ ​the​ ​UK​ ​leaving​ ​the​ ​EU​ ​citizenship.​ ​As 
compared​ ​to​ ​the​ ​other​ ​options​ ​of​ ​registering​ ​them​ ​after​ ​the​ ​UK​ ​leaves​ ​the​ ​EU​ ​or​ ​giving 
them​ ​any​ ​other​ ​of​ ​the​ ​possible​ ​statuses​ ​that​ ​would​ ​need​ ​to​ ​be​ ​given​ ​to​ ​them. 
I​ ​can​ ​confirm​ ​that​ ​this​ ​information​ ​is​ ​​not​ ​held​ ​by​ ​the​ ​Department​ ​for​ ​Exiting​ ​the​ ​EU​ ​(DExEU). 
W​hilst​ ​DExEU​ ​is​ ​responsible​ ​for​ ​overseeing​ ​and​ ​coordinating​ ​work​ ​on​ ​the​ ​UK’s​ ​approach​ ​to 
the​ ​negotiations,​ ​as​ ​far​ ​as​ ​individual​ ​policy​ ​issues​ ​are​ ​concerned,​ ​other​ ​Government 
departments​ ​continue​ ​to​ ​lead​ ​on​ ​their​ ​respective​ ​portfolios. 
If​ ​you​ ​are​ ​unhappy​ ​with​ ​the​ ​service​ ​you​ ​have​ ​received​ ​in​ ​relation​ ​to​ ​your​ ​request​ ​or​ ​wish​ ​to 
request​ ​an​ ​internal​ ​review,​ ​you​ ​should​ ​write​ ​to​ ​​​ ​or:

You​ ​should​ ​note​ ​that​ ​DExEU​ ​will​ ​not​ ​normally​ ​accept​ ​an​ ​application​ ​for​ ​internal​ ​review​ ​if​ ​it​ ​is 
received​ ​more​ ​than​ ​two​ ​months​ ​after​ ​the​ ​date​ ​that​ ​the​ ​reply​ ​was​ ​issued. 
If​ ​you​ ​are​ ​not​ ​content​ ​with​ ​the​ ​outcome​ ​of​ ​your​ ​internal​ ​review,​ ​you​ ​may​ ​apply​ ​directly​ ​to​ ​the 
Information​ ​Commissioner​ ​for​ ​a​ ​decision.​ ​Generally,​ ​the​ ​Commissioner​ ​cannot​ ​make​ ​a 
decision​ ​unless​ ​you​ ​have​ ​exhausted​ ​the​ ​complaints​ ​procedure​ ​provided​ ​by​ ​DExEU.​ ​The 
Information​ ​Commissioner​ ​can​ ​be​ ​contacted​ ​at:
