The Home Office publishes data on asylum in the ‘Immigration Statistics Quarterly Release’. Data on asylum applications are published in table Asy_D01, data on initial decisions on asylum applications are published in table Asy_D02, and data on asylum applications awaiting an initial decision are published in table Asy_D03 of the ‘asylum and resettlement detailed datasets’. Information on how to use the datasets can be found in the ‘Notes’ page of the workbooks. The latest data relates to the year ending June 2022. Data for July 2022 to the end of September 2022 is set to be published on 24 November 2022.

Data on outcome analysis on asylum applications raised in a specific period are published in table Asy_D04 of the ‘asylum and resettlement detailed datasets’. Information on how to use the datasets can be found in the ‘Notes’ page of the workbooks. The latest data relates to 2021. Data for 2022 will be published in 2023.

Information on future Home Office statistical release dates can be found in the ‘Research and statistics calendar’.

Whilst we hold data on the current addresses of asylum claimants, the Home Office is unable to state how many asylum claims from people in Newport East constituency have been submitted and are outstanding as of 02 November 2022 or what the average wait time is for an asylum interview or decision in Newport East constituency, or the UK as this information could only be obtained at disproportionate cost because it would require a manual search through individual records.
