Service and work histories of people removed from the UK are held only at the level of coordinated paper case files or within the notes section of the UK Border Agency’s Case Information Database (CID). Those data are not aggregated in national reporting systems, and therefore this information could be provided only through a disproportionately expensive manual case search to collate the data.
