Information on the average waiting time to a first tribunal hearing and to attend a 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. 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 It will include cases cleared at hearing and cases cleared without a hearing which include strike outs, superseded and withdrawals prior to a hearing.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.

These statistics are available by Tribunal Venue in the Tribunal Statistics CSV files, available here:
