We do not differentiate between the cost of detaining foreign nationals awaiting deportation following a conviction in the UK and other detainees so the information requested is not readily discernible.

The information requested could be obtained only by examination of individual records to establish whether the person had committed a criminal offence at disproportionate cost.
