Information is not held in relation to the specific date on which individuals move to certain areas. We have therefore provided figures for the number of legacy asylum cases based on the applicant's last known address with postcodes in the Ashton-under-Lyne constituency. The total number of legacy cases in the Ashton-under-Lyne constituency is 130. Of those, 105 have resulted in the asylum seeker being granted leave to remain; five have resulted in the asylum seeker being granted discretionary leave to remain and five have resulted in the asylum seeker being removed.


Figures rounded to the nearest 5 (- = 0, * = 1 or 2). Figures may not sum to the totals shown because of independent rounding. Figures were extracted on 26 October 2011.
