Waiting times for permission applications for judicial review in the Upper Tribunal (IAC)

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, Her Majesty’s Courts and the Tribunals Service should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear Her Majesty’s Courts and the Tribunals Service,

Could you please supply me with the following updated information, points 1-3 below, for each month from October 2016 to December 2016. Many thanks.

1, the average number of calendar days from lodgement of immigration judicial review claims in the Upper Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum Chamber) to a paper permission decision.

2, the average number of calendar days from lodgement of immigration judicial review claims in the Upper Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum Chamber) to an oral permission decision.

3, the average number of calendar days from lodgement of immigration judicial review claims in the Upper Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum Chamber) to a substantive decision.

With regard to point 2, I would like to raise the following query. From previous FOI requests, the number of oral permissions decisions has been relatively low: 8 oral permission decisions in September 2016. Yet, the daily court lists show seem to indicate that the numbers of oral permission hearings/decisions are higher than this. Could you please clarify? Many thanks.

Thanks for your help.

Yours faithfully,

Robert Thomas
