Border and Immigration Agency

Volume 474: debated on Wednesday 26 March 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what the titles are of the Case Resolution Teams in the Border and Immigration Agency; how many full-time equivalent staff are allocated to each team; how many outstanding cases are allocated to each team; and how many older, unresolved asylum cases are assigned to each team. (195170)

[holding answer 18 March 2008]: Case Resolution Teams are identified serially by number and are abbreviated with a suffix CRT(S), CRT(M) or CRT(L) depending upon whether they are located in Croydon (S stands for South), Manchester or Liverpool.

There are currently around 60 case owner teams with a full time equivalent staff complement, ranging from seven to 15 per team.

In December 2007 we allocated 330,000 principal applicant cases to around 60 case owner teams so that each team has about 5,500 cases to conclude.
