We are unable to provide the information requested as this would involve undertaking a manual trawl of individual cases which would incur dispropor-tionate cost.

The number of overall refusals and those refused on criminality grounds for all citizenship casework is published as part of the Migration Transparency data, available at https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/immigration-statistics-year-ending-december-2018/list-of-tables#citizenship - cz_09 for all refusals of citizenship by main reason.

Additionally, the Home Secretary provides regular updates to the Home Af-fairs Select Committee on the work of the Department in connection with Windrush. These updates can be found at:
