The information requested could only be obtained at disproportionate costs. This is because appeals against decisions of CICA to the First-tier Tribunal (Criminal Injuries Compensation) are not limited to applications that CICA has rejected. To answer the question would require a manual check of all appeals. However, information on the number of applications that proceed to the appeal stage and the number of those that are overturned can be found in CICA’s annual reports.
