We have recently reviewed the fee waiver policy, invested in recruitment and continued process improvement and also engaged with Local Authorities on how we may identify and, where required, prioritise fee waiver applications from those who are most vulnerable.

This provides certainty for all those in the Dublin system that the UK will continue to process their claims to be transferred here to have their asylum claim assessed.</p><p>Given that the UK will not be a part of the Dublin III Regulations following exit from the EU in the event that no deal is secured, we will need to rely on the cooperation of other Member States in order to fulfil this commitment.
