The published statistics on grants and refusals of extensions of leave by category can be found in table ex_01_q in the Immigration Statistics release.

The latest release Immigration Statistics October - December 2016, is available for download at:

https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/immigration-statistics-october-to-december-2016 with the extensions tables at https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/593024/extensions-q4-2016-tables.ods

The published statistics do not differentiate between applicants with dependents and those without and so cannot accurately answer the MP’s question.
