To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, how many applications for administrative review have been made to the EU Settlement Scheme; how many of those applications were (a) successful and (b) successful due to new evidence or an error by the caseworker in the original decision.

In the period up to 31 May 2019, the last point at which data was assured, 368 applications were received for administrative review of decisions made on applications under the EU Settlement Scheme. Of these:

• 30 administrative review applications were rejected, e.g. because no EU Settlement Scheme application had been received;

• in all the remaining 253 cases, the applicant was challenging a grant of pre-settled status rather than settled status, of which:

o 22 of these grants of pre-settled status were upheld following the administrative review; and

o 231 of these grants of pre-settled status were overturned, and the applicant was instead granted settled status following administrative review. In these cases, the applicant had generally accepted a grant of pre-settled status when making their application and then provided additional evidence of their eligibility for settled status with their application for administrative review.
