I agree with what the hon. and learned Lady is saying. Does she acknowledge the point made by my hon. Friend Cat Smith in opening this debate—that people taking one of the routes she has just suggested would need to apply for biometric deferral, and every single application since 7 October has been refused? Is she baffled by that, as I am, and will she ask the Minister to explain why?
