To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, how many passport applications were upgraded to the fast-track service due to a failure to maintain the ten week service standard in each month since January 2022.

In 2022, the data for the number of applications upgraded to the Fast Track service from a standard application is not held in a reportable format.

An upgrade to the Fast Track service will only occur where the applicant needs a passport sooner than ten weeks. Where His Majesty’s Passport Office received a standard UK application more than ten weeks previously, the application will be expedited at no additional cost.
