The backlog of immigration cases could "fill Wembley Stadium five times over" and need to be cleared as a matter of urgency, the head of an influential select committee has said.
Labour's Keith Vaz warned the Home Office it would not be able to tackle "deeper problems" in the immigration system until the backlog was cleared.
There are still over 430,000 cases languishing in the backlogs, enough to fill Wembley Stadium almost five times over.
As we have said on numerous occasions, the backlogs must be cleared as a matter of priority.
Only then will the Home Office be able to tackle the deeper problems in the immigration system.
