Dear Mr Lo,

I have checked the figures again and the figure 49,971,015 is the correct figure. The figure 49,871,015 in the table is a typo.

I have amended the response, which is attached.

Thank you for raising this issue with us and I apologise for the error in our response.

Yours sincerely

Dear FOI,

Thank you for your reply.

I attempted to calculate the total number using the figures provided from the table however I got the incorrect figure 49,871,015 .

If the figure 49,971,015 is correct that means the table may be contained incorrect data.

Could you please clarify about this? Thank you.

Yours sincerely,

Luke Lo

Dear Mr Lo

The figure 49,971,015 is correct. I have looked at the table again and the figure for GBN passports issued was incorrect.

I have amended the table with the correct figure
