To ask Her Majesty's Government how many people in each of the last five years have been denied entry into the United Kingdom on grounds of (a) national security, and (b) threat to public harmony.
In total, 3,829 persons were refused entry at the UK border on grounds relating to the public good. This figure cannot be broken down into a) national security and b) threat to public harmony, as specific reasons on refusals relating to the public good are only recorded under the categories "Exclusion Conducive to the Public Good" or "(EEA) Regulations 2006". The annual breakdown for these types of refusal in the last five years is as follows:
