§ Mr. Henderson
To ask the Parliamentary Secretary, Lord Chancellor's Department if he will provide a breakdown of the number of full-time and part-time special adjudicators employed by the Immigration Appellate Authority(a) at the present time, (b) on 1 January 1994 and (c) on 1 January 1993. 
Mr. John M. Taylor
There were no special adjudicators on 1 January 1993 as the Immigration Appeals Bill had not yet been enacted. The first special adjudicators were designated by the Lord Chancellor in July 1993. On 1 January 1994 there were 16 full-time immigration adjudicators and 15 part-time immigration adjudicators who were designated as special adjudicators by the Lord Chancellor. At the present time 25 full-time and 52 part-time immigration adjudicators are so designated.
