Dr Julian Lewis: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, how many high net-worth Russian people were granted British citizenship on the basis of their wealth in each year since 2010 broken down by people who subsequently (a) retained and (b) renounced Russian citizenship. 
[Due for Answer on 2 March. Answered on 11 March.]
HOLDING ANSWER: The Home Office has indicated that it will not be possible to answer this question within the usual time period. An answer is being prepared and will be provided as soon as it is available.
The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for the Home Department (Kevin Foster): The requirements for a person to register or naturalise as a British citizen is set out in the British Nationality Act 1981 (BNA81). The net worth of an individual is not a basis on which an application for British citizenship would be granted. All applications for British citizenship are considered against the relevant requirements of the BNA81. Consequently, we do not hold the data as requested.
