Number of Fish obtaining British Passports in year to date

HM Passport Office did not have the information requested.

Dear HM Passport Office,

On the 14th Jan 2021, the Rt. Hon. Jacob Rees Mogg stated in the House of Commons that 'They’re now British fish and they’re better and happier fish for it'.

With the foregoing in mind, could you state the number of passports issued to British fish since Brexit proper began on 1st Jan 2021.

Yours faithfully,

Gareth Hay
