Matter Starts: England and Wales only. New cases. Each provider has a maximum number of matter starts which they are permitted to open in a year. In practice, they can usually obtain more on request. The minimum allocation in immigration is 150. In some areas of law, a provider’s allocation will be reduced if they do not use them all. This does not happen in immigration.
