To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answer by Lord Keen of Elie on 13 July 2018 (HL9105), what steps they have taken to encourage the Tribunal Procedure Committee to reach a decision regarding the implementation of the Government's proposals to cap the time between an initial Home Office decision to remove a detained foreign criminal or failed asylum seeker and the conclusion of their appeal to the First-tier Tribunal.

The Tribunal Procedure Committee is independent of government and it would be inappropriate for ministers or their officials to interfere in the Committee’s decision making.
