Dear Home Office,

Thank you for sending me the statistics.

I asked, however, specifically for applications under section 13(3), whereas you have sent me the statistics for applications and grants under section 13(1).
(3)If a person of full capacity who has ceased to be a British citizen as a result of a declaration of renunciation (for whatever reason made) makes an application for his registration as such a citizen, the Secretary of State may, if he thinks fit, cause him to be registered as such a citizen.

Please kindly send the information regarding section 13(3) as per the original request:

a. Number of applications under section 13(3) for this period, i.e. resumption after renunciation for whatever reason;
b. Number of grants under section 13(3) for this period, i.e. by discretion.

Yours faithfully,

Clowes Bureaucracy Experts LTD
