asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many applications for bail have been made to the Immigration Appeals Tribunal and quarter of 1978; and how many such the immigration adjudicators in each applications were successful.

The only readily available figures relate to bail applications made to adjudicators at the appeals centre at Harmondsworth. I regret that comprehensive figures could be obtained only at disproportionate cost. The Harmondsworth figures are as follows:

1978Number of applications for bailNumber of cases in which bail granted
1st quarter74
2nd quarter53
3rd quarter106
4th Quarter64

Note: The number of applications heard is not necessarily equal to the number of persons applying for bail since one person may make more than one application.
