Dear Her Majesty’s Courts and the Tribunals Service,

I have some queries regarding the process time of an application, made in November 2016 to first tribunal against a decision made by the first tribunal, for permission to appeal to upper tribunal
1.How long on average did it take for the First Tier Tribunal
judge or Upper Tribunal Judge to grant or refuse the permission
after the Home Office application for permission to appeal to the
Upper Tribunal was made?
2. For the relevant cases , if the permission to appeal to the
Upper Tribunal was accepted by either of the Tribunal's judges, how
long was the average waiting time from that date to the hearing
date or decision date or both?

Yours faithfully,

WAQAR SHAH

Data Access & Compliance Unit, Her Majesty's Courts and Tribunals Service

Thank you for your e-mail, I am writing to advise you that your enquiry does not fall under the Freedom of Information regime and will be treated by the department as Official Correspondence.
 
It may be helpful if I explain that the Freedom of Information Act (2000) gives individuals and organisations the right of access to all types of recorded information held, at the time the request is received, by public authorities such as the Ministry of Justice (MoJ). Section 84 of the Act states that in order for a request for information to be handled as a Freedom of Information (FOI) request, it must be for recorded information. For example, a Freedom of Information request would be for a copy of a policy, rather than an explanation as to why we have that policy in place. On occasion, the Ministry of Justice receives requests that do not ask for recorded information, but ask more general questions about, for example, a policy, opinion or a decision.
 
this will be dealt with as Official Correspondence and you can expect a response from the appropriate area of the department.
 
If you do have any questions relating specifically to the Freedom of Information or Data Protection Act, please contact the Data Access and Compliance Unit at the following e-mail address: [HMCTS request email]
