To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, whether he has made an assessment of the potential merits of providing a minimum of 12 months notice to the first arrivals under the Ukrainian sponsorship schemes of plans for continued sponsorship on the current schemes' expiration.

The UK Government is, of course, mindful that permission for the first arrivals under the Ukrainian schemes will start to expire from March 2025, and that Ukrainians in the UK, as well as their hosts and sponsors, are understandably seeking more certainty to help them continue to settle in the UK and live independently. We are keeping the Ukraine schemes, and the evolving situation in Ukraine itself, under constant review to assess the best approach, including ensuring that Ukrainians in the UK are informed about the sponsorship options available to them in good time.
