Asylum and Immigration Tribunal: Databases

Volume 473: debated on Friday 14 March 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice what categories of information and variables are recorded on the Asylum and Immigration Tribunal database. (193329)

The Asylum and Immigration Tribunal’s database was designed to hold all information relevant to the administration of an appeal case, together with data essential for monitoring and reporting on the tribunal’s performance. Due to the sheer volume of database categories, variables and fields, to provide a full list or comprehensive summary of these elements would be unwieldy, and to place such information in the public domain would breach agreements between the tribunal and its contracted software developers.
