Bishop of Durham asks about admissibility of asylum applications

The Bishop of Durham received the following written answer on 28th February 2023:

The Lord Bishop of Durham asked His Majesty’s Government:

  • what is the average processing time for a decision on the admissibility of an asylum application
  • how many individuals’ asylum applications were declared inadmissible in 2022; and what percentage of such individuals were returned to a safe or third country.
  • how many individuals, whose applications were declared inadmissible for asylum but who were unable to be returned to a third country, have been added to the list of asylum applications.

Lord Murray of Blidworth (Con): Statistics on inadmissibility can be found in tables Asy_09a and Asy_09b of the Asylum and Resettlement Summary Tables which are published on quarterly.

The Home Office does not publish a breakdown of these statistics which provide an average length of time to reach an inadmissibility decision. Those figures are not available in a reportable format and to provide the information could only be done at disproportionate cost.
