To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, how many right of abode certificates have been (a) applied for and (b) granted to (i) males and (ii) females by country of origin following a change of name in each year since 2010; and how much has accrued to the public purse from those applications in each year since 2010.

Answer (Caroline Nokes)

The Home Office does not record the information requested as this is not part of the application process. To provide the requested information would require manual examination of all applications for right of abode and exceed the dispropotionate cost limit.
