Dear Home Office,
As requested, I would like to clarify on what information I am hoping to received.
Currently entry clearance applications under the Points Based System (PBS) receive a vignette in their passports and a biometric residence permit (BRP) when they arrive in the UK.
If they would like to extend or switch into different immigration categories, they would need to make a Leave to Remain application. If thier applications are successful, they would received new BRPs (making their expired or old BRP invalid)

The Home Office decision letters (applicants currently receives) states that the applicant will need to return their expired or old BRP by cutting it up in 4 squares or face a penalty of up to £1000 if they fail to do this.

Therefore, I am requesting a 2015/16, 2016/17 and 2017/18 data showing the following:
1) how many people returned their old or expired BRPs?
2) how many people were fined for failing to return their old or expired BRPs?
3) what was the range in fines people received?

Hopefully, this makes a lot more sense

Yours faithfully,

Cindy Boateng
