Question

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, how many (a) personal independence payments and (b) employment and support allowance appeals are heard on average each day at Tribunal in (i) Huddersfield, (ii) Bradford and (iii) Leeds; and how many people on average are added each day to a waiting list for an appeal hearing at each of those Tribunals.

Answer (Lucy Frazer)

The information requested is not held centrally.

The information is not available, because the SSCS Generic Appeals Processing System (GAPS) cannot calculate the average rate per day. Venues may not be used daily, and a daily average would therefore be statistically unreliable. Furthermore, the relevant computer records are not run on a daily basis.
