Home Office written question – answered on 20th March 2023.
What recent assessment she has made of the adequacy of waiting times for asylum interviews.
Activity is underway to reduce the waiting time to be interviewed through a number of process improvements, including conducting shorter, more focused interviews and giving more flexibility over the process of making asylum decisions.
I am pleased to report we are on track and have doubled the number of caseworkers on cases. We have also prioritised those eligible for removal through a new dedicated unit staffed by 400 new specialists considering claims from Albanian illegal migrants.
