To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what assessment he has made of the potential merits of his Department paying the £65 application fee for settled or pre-settled status for EU nationals (a) employed by and (b) working as an outsourced worker in his Department; what estimate he has made of the total cost to his Department of paying those fees; and what assessment he has made of the risks that the EU Settlement Scheme poses to the retention of EU nationals (i) employed by or (ii) working as an outsourced worker in his Department.

No assessment has been made. Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) employees must be British nationals so the Settlement Scheme does not apply. Outsourced workers are not FCO employees so this would be a decision for their employer.
