Several files contain a column named "licence_group" which lists unique licence IDs for cross referencing.
Due to ambiguity in the source documents from which these data were compiled, the following columns may include some inaccuracies.
- Refusal criteria may contain some false-positive matches.
- Source and destination countries may contain some false-positive matches.
- Low price values may be inaccurate by one or two pounds.
