Home Office must process asylum claim every four minutes to meet backlog target


he Home Office must clear more than 10,000 asylum cases a month to meet the Prime Minister’s commitment of tackling the “legacy” backlog by the end of the year, a new report suggests.

That would equate to 354 decisions a day or one decision every four minutes, the Guardian reports.

Refugee Council analysis released on Wednesday found that the Home Office must make 10,630 decisions on asylum cases each month from now until December to clear the backlog.
