Excel. Where each row of the data is structured as follows:

1- Name of sponsor company

Dear UK Border Agency,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of UK Border Agency's handling of my FOI request 'Tier 2 general visas and sponsor companies'.

I had requested that the sector of the company applying for the visa also be specified. This information has not been provided despite the fact that it exists in your databases.

Additionally, many of the entries are marked with '+'. It was not specified as to what this means.

Can these be clarified?

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address:

Yours faithfully,
