Statement on passport issues

The shambles at the Home Office continues to be laid bare as my constituents still face major issues with the passport office.

My staff and I understand and share the frustration as we spend two to three hours a day on hold waiting to get through to the passport office.

We will continue to do everything within our power to push officers to update us on and speed up passport applications, but it is ultimately up to the passport office to progress and process these applications.

I wrote to the Home Secretary over a month ago raising concerns about the current situation regarding passports - needless to say, she hasn't responded.
