Information on how many individuals who were granted British citizenship who had previously absconded from immigration detentions is not aggregated in national reporting systems. This information could only be obtained by a

disproportionately expensive manual case by case search to collate the data.

However where a person has previously absconded from immigration detention they would not normally be granted citizenship as the good character requirement would not be satisfied.
