To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, how many people have been returned from the UK to the Iran in each of the last five years having exhausted the appeals process; and how many cases of such returns are pending an appeals process.

The number of returns from the UK to Iran is published in table rt_04_q (returns data tables, volume 4) in ‘Immigration Statistics, year ending June 2018’. The data are available from the GOV.uk website at: https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/immigration-statistics-year-ending-june-2018

HM Courts and Tribunal Service publishes appeals data on a quarterly basis which can be accessed at the following link: https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/tribunals-and-gender-recognition-certificate-statistics-quarterly-april-to-june-2018

Individuals who have had their claims certified may only exercise their appeal rights once they have left the United Kingdom. Cross referencing those individuals against those with extant appeals could only be achieved at disproportionate cost.
