holding answer 3 February 2011

Cases dealt with under the "legacy" programme are asylum cases that were lodged with the agency on or prior to 5 March 2007 therefore no new legacy cases were lodged in the last 24 months. In response to part (b) of the question, the agency provides regular updates on performance, including a breakdown into grants, removals and "other" cases such as duplicates or errors, to the Home Affairs Select Committee and is due to report in the spring.

On 1 November the agency reported to the Home Affairs Select Committee that it had concluded 334,500 cases.
