To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what estimate his Department has made of the number of visa applicants who have not received an Immigration Surcharge Number as a result of that number being provided to those applicants' legal representatives and not those applicants directly; and if he will make a statement.

The Home Office does not routinely record the information requested. The Immigration Health Surcharge number is sent to the email address that is provided during the payment process. Customers should ensure that they are receiving information about their application from anybody acting on their behalf, but any customer who requires details of their IHS number can request it via UKVI contact channels.
