Immigration Appeals

Volume 447: debated on Tuesday 20 June 2006

To ask the Minister of State, Department for Constitutional Affairs how many immigration appeals from appellants in Leeds were heard in South Shields in (a) 2004 and (b) 2005. (76600)

The Asylum and Immigration Tribunal (AIT) operates a hearing centre at North Shields. Of the appeals heard at North Shields, in the period April to December 2005, 12 substantive appeals were from appellants with a home address in the Leeds postal area.

It is not possible to break down the substantive appeals by location of the appellant for any period prior to April 2005 without incurring disproportionate cost.
