Similar to the Car Allowance Rebate System (CARS), also known as “cash for clunkers” program in the US, the UK in 2009 offered a Car Scrappage Scheme for owners of old cars to trade them in for a new car and receive a £2000 rebate. Over 400,000 Brits took them up on the offer including hundreds of classic Mini owners.
The UK government just released the List of scrapped vehicles in 2009 (Download CSV).

There are even 3 MINI Coopers and 2 MINI Clubman on the list.
Below are the majority of the Minis on the list:
