Data regarding the range of conditions upon which people are granted access to bail

We're waiting for Raquel Amador to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Immigration Department,

I am writing to make a data access request regarding the range of conditions upon which people are granted access to bail. May I know, in each of the years between 2018-20, how many people were required to provide one or more of the following conditions:

a) the name and address of an individual that is required to stand as surety

b) a sum in bail money

c) an address.

If a CSV or Excel format is possible, I would greatly appreciate it.

Yours faithfully,

Raquel Amador
