To ask Her Majesty’s Government, further to the Written Answer by Baroness Warsi on 22 January (WA 120–1), what is their estimate of (1) the number of United Kingdom citizens living abroad in each European Union member state apart from Croatia, and (2) the number of United Kingdom citizens living abroad in each European Union member state apart from Croatia and claiming a United Kingdom state pension, in 2010 or any other year since 2000 for which figures are available.
The most recent figures we have are taken from a 2010 report which was commissioned by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office’s Consular Directorate. These figures are estimates of the number of United Kingdom citizens living abroad (including for part of a year). We also have 2010 figures for those living abroad and drawing a UK pension. We do not have a further breakdown of figures for those working abroad, or for those who have retired and are not drawing a UK pension. • Total number of UK citizens living abroad in EU Member States in 2010 (estimate): 2,197,800• Total number of UK citizens living abroad in EU Member States and claiming a UK state pension in 2010: 395,450.• Numbers for each EU Member State, excluding Croatia:
