Details

This report presents the latest statistics on type and volume of Tribunal cases that are received, disposed of or outstanding as of the third quarter of the financial year 2013/14 (October to December 2013).

Receipts

  • HMCTS Tribunals recorded 132,000 receipts in the period October to December 2013. This is 40% lower than the same period of 2012, and the lowest receipts since this statistical series began in 2008/09. This has been driven by reductions in Social Security and Child Support appeals.

Disposals

  • There were a total of 223,000 cases or claims disposed of in October to December 2013. This represents an increase of 19% on those cases disposed of in the same period in 2012, and is the highest volume of disposals since the start of this statistical series in 2008/09.

Caseload outstanding

  • For all tribunals combined, the caseload outstanding at the end of December 2013 was 844,000, similar to a year earlier but 10% lower than last quarter.

Timeliness

  • For Social Security and Child Support Tribunals, in October to December 2013 half of all cases were cleared in 19 weeks or less. For Immigration and Asylum, this was 24 weeks or less, and for Employment Tribunal single claims, it was 22 weeks or less.
