Data on unsuccessful appeals against deportation is only held at the level of coordinated paper case files or within the notes section of the Case Information Database (CID). Such data is not aggregated in national reporting systems, which would mean these questions could only be answered through a disproportionately expensive manual case search to collate the data.
