answer text <p>Wherever possible, the Department will lay Independent Chief Inspector of Borders and Immigration (ICIBI) reports before Parliament within 8 weeks of receipt, or as soon as possible thereafter.</p><p>It is important that the Department and Ministers give full consideration to the serious recommendations made in ICIBI reports. In some circumstances, this will take longer than 8 weeks due to the complexity or importance of the recommendations.</p><p>In order to provide full transparency, reports will only be laid in Parliament when both Houses are sitting. This will sometimes necessitate a longer timeframe between submission of the report and publication.</p> more like this

answer text <p>Where an applicant provides credible evidence of the life-threatening illness or death of a close family member overseas, UKVI will expedite the application regardless of its date of submission, unless there are serious countervailing factors which necessitate holding the case. The speed with which a decision can be despatched on an expedited case depends on the completeness of the supporting evidence submitted. No review is planned.</p> more like this
