The Home Office does not measure the average time for responding to correspondence from hon. Members.
However, in line with Cabinet Office guidance, the Home Office has a target of responding within 20 working days where a response is required.
As you will understand, the Home Office has, during the current year, dealt with unprecedented volumes of correspondence due to COVID-19. The Home Office ensures that urgent cases raised by hon. Members are prioritised and is taking steps to provide substantive responses in as short a time as possible.
All correspondence received from hon. Members is being reviewed and will be responded to as soon as possible.
