Here’s my question to the Minister of State for Security and Immigration on the continuing problems with passports;
“Over 40 constituents have come to me about late passport applications. It is not just about their passports; it is about their family holidays and individual holidays this summer. Surely the Minister should have foreseen these problems, given the massive increase in foreign applications. What percentage is due to the massive increase in foreign applications and what will he do to ensure that this does not happen again?”
A transcript of all the questions is available here;http://www.publications.parliament.uk/pa/cm201415/cmhansrd/cm140707/debtext/140707-0001.htm#140707-0001.htm_spnew9
Again, my advice would be that if you have any upcoming arrangements requiring a passport, make sure it’s up to date and start the renewal process as soon as possible if not.
If you are having difficulties of your own in terms of renewing your passport, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with my constituency office on 0131 662 4520 and we’ll do everything we can to help.
