Rev. Martin Smyth

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how many people in Northern Ireland hold(a) a British and (b) an Irish passport. [136138]

My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for the Home Department has advised me that records are not kept on the numbers of British passports issued in a particular region of the United Kingdom.

Irish passports are the responsibility of the Irish Government.
