Tribunal updates Practice Directions

Tribunal updates Practice Directions

The immigration and asylum tribunal has issued updated but essentially unchanged Practice Directions. The new document is almost identical to the previous version, dated November 2014. I’ve put the new Directions into a text comparison programme alongside the old and it flags up just one change:

13. Bail applications

13.1 Subject to First-tier Rule 39(3), an application for bail must, if practicable, be listed for hearing within three six working days of receipt by the Tribunal of the notice of application.

The tribunal’s Practice Statements were updated in June 2018, also with almost no change to the text.
