To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, how many passengers (a) have entered the UK from countries on which the UK has imposed quarantine restrictions since those restrictions were imposed, (b) have registered their addresses and contact details for quarantine purposes and (c) have been subject to spot checks to ensure that quarantine requirements are being fulfilled.

Border Force does not collect the data on country of origin format unless there is an issue with non-compliance, therefore, we do not hold that level of data.

Border Force continue to operate a spot checking regime to support compliance with the PLF, and will balance the needs of this against a range of other factors, including the public health risk of queuing passengers in a confined space.
