UKBA Loose Confidential Information and Shrug it off!

My wife went to a reporting event on 1st July 2010.  UKBA had already obtained her valid passport.  However, my wife did not have her IS96 letter with her so was told that she would be marked as failing to attend a reporting event, as they could not admit her without identification.
