The minister responsible for Syrian refugees in the UK has refused to reveal how many people have arrived in Britain under the government's resettlement programme.
Richard Harrington said he was not prepared to provide a "running commentary" on the numbers brought to the UK since David Cameron announced plans to accept 20,000 Syrian refugees over five years.
He told MPs at the home affairs select committee that he knew how many people had arrived since the initiative was launched last month but repeatedly declined to give figures.
Mr Harrington, who was appointed to the newly created ministerial post last month, said: "I don't think anything will be helped by my giving a running commentary on numbers."
His refusal to disclose the information drew criticism from the committee chairman, Keith Vaz.
We will have to write to the Prime Minister now and tell him that we need this figure because frankly I think it is unsatisfactory for you to come before this committee and not have the numbers. The public is very interested in this.

Home Secretary Theresa May has been accused of "not responding to the unfolding nature" of the refugee crisis by Labour's Andy Burnham.
As ITV News records a typical day on a Greek island overwhelmed by refugees, the shadow home secretary urged Mrs May to "look at the TV pictures today" and "show some humanity".
Mrs May defended the Government's response and said "it is better for people not to try to make the dangerous journey across the Mediterranean and other routes into Europe".
The Greek island of Lesbos has continued to offer aid to the latest refugees and migrants who have journeyed in their thousands across the Mediterranean Sea.
A ferry transported around 2,500 to the island on Monday, the latest arrival among an estimated 580,000 people to have arrived in Europe by sea this year.
