Local Edinburgh West MP Christine Jardine has called for the Home Office to urgently address the backlog which is causing lengthy delays to DVLA and passport applications.
“My team and I have been working hard to accelerate applications from constituents for passports and driving license applications.
“It is not acceptable that people are having to put their lives on hold waiting months on end to get their documents.
"I have raised numerous times in the House of Commons. The Government must get into shape and commit the necessary resources to fix this extremely important issue.
“I will continue to urge the Home Office to back up their rhetoric and actually deliver so that constituents can get what they need to work and travel.”
