§ Fiona Mactaggart
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department when he expects the pilot of the Casework Programme in the Immigration and Nationality Directorate to begin. 
§ Mr. Mike O'Brien
Piloting involves using the system on real cases for the first time and will not begin until the system has been thoroughly tested by the Immigration and Nationality Directorate. It is not possible at this stage to give a firm date, since testing has not yet begun.
