Dear Home Office,

In a Home Office letter dated 18 December 2012 from Lord Taylor of Holbeach to Lord Avebury it stated "The management information which is currently available from the UK Border Agency's systems for the period from 9 July to 31 October (and is provisional and subject to change) is that one settlement visa was issued in that period to an adult dependent relative under the new rules", where
new rules relates to the rules in effect from 9 July 2012.

This indicates that such information IS readily available.

Please therefore provide the following information:

a) Please indicate how many adult dependant relative settlement applications were received under the rules in effect for applications submitted after 9 July 2012 i.e. applications to which the post 9 July 2012 rules apply?

b) Of the figure in a), how many of these have been i) granted ii) refused iii) are still in process:

x) to the most recent date available ?
xx) to 31 October 2012? i.e. Given Lord Taylor's statement that the info relating to the issue of 'one settlement visa' is provisional and subject to change, I would like to know the current/updated status of the figure previously provided.

Yours sincerely

BritCits
