To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, how many EU citizens living in the UK have (a) applied and (b) yet to apply for settled status; and if she will publish the data she holds on application conversions.

The latest published information on EU Settlement Scheme applications recieved can be found in the Home Office’s ‘EU Settlement Scheme monthly statistics’ available at: https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/eu-settlement-scheme-statistics-september-2019.

Figures in this publication refer specifically to applications made to the EU Settlement Scheme and, as noted in the statistical report, cannot be directly compared with estimates of the resident population of European Economic Area nationals in the UK, which do not take account of people’s migration intentions and will therefore include people who have come to the UK for a range of purposes, including some who have no intention to settle in the UK.

The Home Office publishes a range of statistics on the EU Settlement Scheme including on applications and their outcomes, but we are not yet able to publish statistics relating to those applicants with pre-settled status who subsequently apply for settled status. However, Home Office statisticians keep the content of the statistical reports under review and will take into account the views of statistics users as they continue to develop these statistics.
