For the First Tier Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum Chamber), Upper Tribunal (Immigration and Asylum Chamber), Social Security and Child Support, Criminal Injuries Compensation, Mental Health, and Special Educational Needs and Disability, MoJ publishes figures on adjournments as part of National Statistics, and the figures relating to the period request are due for publication later in 2020. For Magistrates’ courts and Crown Courts, figures on adjournments are not collated but figures on vacated hearings in the first and second quarters of 2020 are due for publication as part of the National Statistics on criminal courts in June and September 2020 respectively. Comprehensive figures for adjournments are not held for other tribunals and the family and civil courts.
