How many British citizens have applied for passports of other EU countries because of the Brexit vote and how many have moved to other EU countries?

Department for Exiting the European Union did not have the information requested.

Dear Department for Exiting the European Union,

What monitoring, research and statistical analysis is the UK Government doing to find out how many UK citizens have applied for passports of other EU countries since the referendum vote on continued membership of the European Union?

What monitoring, research and statistical analysis is the UK Government doing to find out how many UK citizens have left the UK and moved to other EU member states because of the Brexit vote?

Can the Department for Exiting the European Union tell me
(1) how many British citizens applied for passports of countries which will mean they retain an EU citizenship if the UK leaves the EU?
(2) how this number compares with the typical number of British citizens who applied for passports of other European Union countries in the five years before the referendum?
(3) how many British citizens have left the UK and moved to other EU member states since the Brexit vote?
(4) how this number compares with the typical number of British citizens who moved to other European Union countries in the five years before the referendum?
(5) What analysis the British Government has done to find out how many British citizens have taken out other European citizenships because of the threat of Brexit, and
(6) How many British citizens have left the UK and become British Brexit refugees because of the threat of leaving the EU and losing rights as EU citizens?

As one of the many people who has renewed or taken out an alternative passport because of the Brexit vote I am sure that the UK government will need to assess how many UK citizens have taken out alternative citizenships and / or become Brexit refugees elsewhere in Europe and assessed the impact of this on the UK economy and society including social stability, wealth creation and family ties.

Yours faithfully,
