For the last year can I know:

2) What are the locations of the visits in Q1?
3) How many people agreed to voluntarily return through these visits? And what were the nationalities of these individuals?
4) How many people were detained by ICE/Home Office through these visits? And what were the nationalities of these individuals?
Generally can I have:
1) The guidance the council’s team working with ICE/Home Office follow when investigating the immigration status of rough sleepers? And when facilitating voluntary return of rough sleepers?
2) The amount of funding from central government (DCLG or Home Office) the council has received in the last 4 years to aid the Home Office with immigration enforcement of rough sleepers?
3) Any reports that evaluate previous work with the Home Office/ICE in aiding with immigration enforcement of rough sleepers?
4) Any proposals submitted in the last 12 months to gain future funding for aiding the Home Office/ICE with immigration enforcement of rough sleepers?

Yours faithfully,
