Notes:

1. July figures are from 29 July 2013 (when the employment tribunal fees were introduced)

2. Figures in this table come from the same database as the experimental statistics in Annex D of Tribunal and Gender Recognition Statistics but may differ slightly from published data. Published data are based on the date the issue fee request was made, whereas this table is based on the date of the remission application.

The figures in these tables have been drawn from administrative IT systems which, as with any large scale recording system, are subject to possible errors with data entry and processing.

Named day
Named day questions only occur in the House of Commons. The MP tabling the question specifies the date on which they should receive an answer. MPs may not table more than five named day questions on a single day.
