The Home Office does not keep a central record of all judgments handed down where it was a party to legal proceedings before the High Court or Court of Appeal of England and Wales. Accordingly, it does not have a central record of all the cases that the Home Office won or lost during 2022-23. This also means that it does not have a central record of the costs which have arisen in each of those cases. This would require a review of each case to collate the information sought. Accordingly, the Department considers the disproportionate cost threshold applies for the collection of this information.
