Mr. Mudie: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department pursuant to the answer of 8 July 2008, Official Report, column 1429W, on asylum, (1) if she will clarify which parts of the letter of 7 July 2008 from the Minister of State, the hon. Member for Birmingham, Hodge Hill, to the hon. Member for Leeds East provide information relevant to (a) the targets set within her Department for processing applications for leave to remain at each stage and (b) the likely date for decision in the case of Mr Last Manzini (M1175940) whose application was lodged in February 2005; and if she will make a statement; [218853]

(2) when she expects the application for leave to remain made by Mr Last Manzini (M1175940) in February 2005 will be decided; and if she will make a statement. [218855]

Mr. Byrne: I wrote to my hon. Friend on 23 July 2008.

Mr. Davidson: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many immigration and asylum cases have been dealt with by legacy case teams in (a) England, (b) Scotland, (c) Wales and (d) Northern Ireland to date; how many such cases remain outstanding; when she expects each such case to have been reviewed; and if she will make a statement. [221672]

Mr. Byrne: We do not hold this information in this format and to obtain it would entail work being carried out at a disproportionate cost.

Lin Homer wrote to the Home Affairs Select Committee on 23 July 2008 to update them on the progress of the work of the Case Resolution Directorate in line with the commitment she gave in her letter dated 17 December 2007 to provide updates every six months.

Asylum: Iraq

Damian Green: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what progress she has made on the plans for a resettlement mission to Syria to discuss the cases of Iraqi former UK interpreters; and if she will make a statement. [218888]

Mr. Byrne: The practicalities of a resettlement mission in Syria remain under discussion. In the meantime, the Iraqis who meet the criteria for the Locally Engaged Staff scheme who are currently in Syria are in receipt of financial support and background checking which would be part of the assessment process of resettlement.
