The Home Office does not publish data on the number of applications which have been outstanding for longer than six months awaiting a final decision, nor does it hold data on those who do not have recourse to public funds awaiting a decision. To capture this data would exceed the cost threshold.

The Home Office does publish data of its performance against its service level agreement, which can be found on the GOV.UK webpage: Migration transparency data - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)

The appeals information requested is not readily available or published. Her Majesty’s Court and Tribunal Service manage the appeals system and publish high level timeliness information.

The most recent publication is here: Tribunal Statistics Quarterly: October to December 2021 - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)
