I join the hon. Gentleman in thanking the staff of the Belfast office for all their work. I also thank the Glasgow office, which Margaret Ferrier mentioned, and HM Passport Office staff around the country.

I will take away the hon. Gentleman’s suggestion for how we might process future applications and share it with the Under-Secretary of State, my hon. Friend the Member for Torbay. As with all suggestions from the hon. Gentleman, I am sure that he will want to consider it closely.
