To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answer by Baroness Williams of Trafford on 11 December 2018 (HL11859), whether they will publish the number of visa refusals by nationality, rather than those at an aggregated level published in the quarterly immigration statistics; and why they do not publish this data currently.

Information on refusals by nationality identifying delegates wishing to enter the UK to attend international scientific conferences and their reasons for such refusals is not recorded on centrally collated statistical databases and would require examination of individual case files at disproportionate cost

The information collected and published in the quarterly Immigration Statistics is kept under review, balancing user needs against burdens on suppliers, in line with the Code of Practice for Statistics
