To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, how many valid British national (overseas) passports were in issue on 31 December in each year since 1987.

I refer to the table below which provides the volume of British National (Overseas) passports in circulation (valid) at 31 December 2015, 31 December 2016 and 31 December 2016.

We are unable to provide data on the volume of British National (Overseas) passports in circulation (valid) prior to 31 December 2015 as the data could only be obtained at disproportionate cost.
