Information on the average waiting time to a first tribunal hearing is not collated centrally and could only be provided at disproportionate cost.
The Ministry of Justice publish statistics on the average (mean) age of a case at disposal. In the period July to September 2018 the mean age at disposal for Personal Independence Payment appeals in Great Britain was 30 weeks. This is the average number of weeks from receipt in Her Majesty's Courts and Tribunals Service (HMCTS) to the final outcome within the period. It will include cases cleared at hearing and cases cleared without a hearing which include strike outs, superseded and withdrawals prior to a hearing. An appeal may not necessarily be cleared at its first hearing.
