The Bishop of St Albans received the following written answer on 6th July 2022:
The Lord Bishop of St Albans asked Her Majesty’s government:
- how many Afghan citizens have arrived in the UK under the Afghan Citizens Resettlement Scheme in each month since 1 January.
- how many Afghan citizens who arrived under the Afghan Citizens Resettlement Scheme since 1 January have been permitted to seek employment.
- how many Afghan citizens who arrived under the Afghans Citizens Resettlement Scheme since 1 January are still in temporary accommodation.
Lord Harrington of Watford: Following the evacuation from Afghanistan, work is underway to ensure information relating to all the individuals relocated is recorded on case working systems. Once this work concludes, statistics on the ACRS and ARAP will be included in future editions of the Immigration Statistics.
All those brought to the UK under the Afghanistan Citizen Resettlement Scheme and the Afghan Relocations and Assistance Policy have the right to work, access to education and healthcare and be able to apply for public funds.
