FOI 146: Individual insolvencies by ward for 2019 – GOV.UK

Our ref: FOI20/21-146

Date: 21 December 2020

Dear ,

Re: Freedom of Information Act 2000

Thank you for your email of 30 November in which you requested from the Insolvency Service:

“I am writing to ask if it would be possible to have the following data set from the Insolvency Service Individual Insolvencies by ward 2019”

Your request has been dealt with under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA).

I can confirm the agency holds the information that you have requested and have provided this information in the accompanying Excel workbook (Annex A to this letter). Note that some totals may not be consistent with information previously published on 2019 individual insolvencies.

Under section 16 of the Act (Advice and Assistance) you may find it useful to note:

Data on individuals that have entered insolvency are sourced from a live administrative system owned and managed by the Insolvency Service.

The information provided at Annex A has been compiled using the same methodology used to produce the agency’s annual official statistic: Individual Insolvencies by Location, Age and Gender, England and Wales, 2019. Note that whilst the methodology was consistent, the data used to compile this response were extracted from the live administrative system at a later date. Therefore, any changes made since the publication of the official statistic will be reflected and totals may not match those previously published.

If you are not satisfied with the response we have provided you and would like us to reconsider our decision by way of an internal review (IR), please contact our Information Rights Team at or by post at:

You also have the right to contact the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) if you wish for them to investigate any complaint you may have regarding our handling of your request. However, please note that the ICO is likely to expect an IR to have been completed in the first instance.

Yours sincerely,
