following grants of leave:
one grant of leave from 1 July 2015 to 28 July 2018 – any absences during this grant of leave
will be considered in separate 12 month periods, ending on 30 June each year

of leave will be considered on a rolling basis - we will not include any absences from the

whether the information or documentation I have supplied is correct or in what way (if any) it is
not correct.
I agree to the bank’s or utility company’s disclosure to the Home Oce of any relevant personal
data they hold on me for the above purposes. If I have not supplied correct information or
supporting documentation to the Home Oce, the bank or utility company may disclose my
relevant correct personal data.

customer or customers of mine on the bank or utility company account, or relates to another
person who is to provide nancial support, I conrm that I have obtained the consent of those

relation to my account. This is limited to what is necessary to conrm that the documentation the
applicant has supplied is correct. If that documentation is not correct, the company may give the
