The requested information on the length of stay granted for exceptional leave to remain, humanitarian protection or discretionary leave to remain after an asylum application has been refused could be obtained only at disproportionate cost by examination of individual case records (humanitarian protection and discretionary leave to remain replaced exceptional leave to remain from 1 April 2003).
