Appeals: Asylum

Volume 467: debated on Tuesday 13 November 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice what mechanisms are available to asylum seekers who have had cases heard by judges (a) Illyas Khan and (b) J and believe inappropriate considerations were taken into account. (162886)

If a party to an appeal before the Asylum and Immigration Tribunal believes that an Immigration Judge has made an error of law for whatever reason, he or she can apply to the Tribunal for the decision to be reconsidered within the time limits provided by the Procedure Rules. If such an application is late, the appellant must advance good reasons to justify an extension of time.
