§ Mr. Bradshaw
11,847 applicants appealed during 2001 (this figure is made up of 5,203 family visit appeals and 6,644 other non-settlement appeals).
Statistical information on the number of applicants who exercised their right of appeal in visitor visa cases is only available from those entry clearance posts that provide monthly statistical information (110 posts in 2001).
The remaining entry clearance posts submit information on an annual basis. To answer this question for all 166 posts the additional posts would have to extract the information requested manually, which could be done only at disproportionate cost.
