Lord Storey – 2016 Parliamentary Question to the Home Office

The below Parliamentary question was asked by Lord Storey on 2016-06-15.

To ask Her Majesty’s Government, further to the Written Answer by Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon on 13 June (HL433), when they expect the quality assurance of the Home Office’s Case Information Database data relating to sexuality-based asylum claims to be completed, and whether they plan routinely to record asylum claims based on, or relating to, gender identity issues in a way that can be easily aggregated.

Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon

The process of quality assuring the data held on the Home Office’s Case Information Database relating to sexuality based asylum claims continues to be undertaken by the Home Office. We are currently looking at ways to expedite this process. There are no current plans to record information where the detail of the asylum claim basis relates to gender identity issues on Home Office databases.
