'Suspended' cases are where the individual has either absconded or is missing prior to the reasonable grounds decision being made.
'Withdrawn' are where the individual has left the UK prior to the reasonable grounds decision being made.
'No decision recorded' means the decision has not been officially logged with UK Human Trafficking Centre (UKHTC). This is where the reasonable grounds decision is either still being considered or where the decision has yet to be recorded on the UKHTC system.
