Written answers (Question to Foreign)

The Passport Service technology system does not record “address” information in the structured format necessary to facilitate the production of management information in relation to place of residency, place of birth etc. However I can provide some information regarding numbers of passports issued by our Embassies and Consulates around the world in 2012 which may be of assistance to the Deputy.
