The Asylum and Immigration Tribunal (AIT) does not currently collate information on the volume of appeals it receives from notices of intent to deport, the number of these appeals allowed nor the number of allowed appeals where the Home Office applies for the Tribunal to reconsider its decision.
Checks made with the Immigration and Nationality Directorate (IND) of the Home Office confirm that this type of information could be obtained only at disproportionate cost by examination of individual case records.
