HC Deb 10 November 1997 vol 300 c425W
37. Mr. Vaz

To ask the Parliamentary Secretary, Lord Chancellor's Department what proposals he has to clear the backlog of cases in the Immigration Tribunal. [13464]

Mr. Hoon

The backlog of outstanding adjudicator appeals is starting to come down. It has fallen by 1,721 appeals since the end of July. We are appointing more adjudicators and giving them the help they need to deal with more cases.
