Dear FOI Responses,

Thank you for replying to my FOI request and the data provided. In the table you have provided some fields requested are missing ie Standard Occupation Code, Start Date & End Date. I think this is because I tried to amalgamate Tier-1 & Tier-2 data along with associated settlement data to try and make the request easier to process and in the subsequent output some columns were dropped off of the report, apologies to the FOI BI team who have done a great job producing the report.

I have clarified my request below by splitting out the different components i.e Tier-1 & Tier-2 details (1 & 2), applications to settle data for Tier-1 & Tier-2 applicants (3 & 4) and Tier-2 Sponsor details (5), hopefully this will be easier for the BI team to answer.
