The most recent data shows that we have attempted to contact all those known to be affected by the requirement to provide DNA evidence, apart from a small number (less than 10) for whom we have been unable to establish contact details.? The most recent data on payments shows that around £340,000 has been paid and there are no requests for payment outstanding. This data is manually collated from different systems, which may not currently be up to date and would require further quality assurance before being suitable for publication by the department
