Dear Ms Smith,

 

Thank you for your email dated 26 November regarding the above request.

 

The latest number of enforced returns can be found in the Returns section
of the Immigration Statistics release, in table rt_04, link
[1]https://www.gov.uk/government/publicatio....

 

The information on enforced returns can be found in column F and you will
need to filter column E (Home/EU/other and destination unknown) in order
to find

 

1. Their "country of origin".

 

2. Another EU member state.

 

3. A country other than their country of origin or another EU member
state.

 

The number of returns of which the destination of deportation/removal to
was not recorded cannot be separately identified from the sub-group in
column E  as these are grouped together to show destination as “other and
not known”.

 

The Immigration Statistics release is published quarterly and therefore
information on a financial basis can also be derived.

 

I hope this is helpful but if you need further information on this matter
please do not hesitate to contact me.

 

Regards,

 

Liza
