Mr. Austin

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what is the(a) target response time and (b) average response time for written inquiries to the Asylum Directorate. [99770]

The Immigration and Nationality Directorate (IND) answer general written inquiries on a wide range of issues. The statistics available do not distinguish asylum-related inquiries from others. The IND does not keep statistics on the average response time for this correspondence.
