More passport office staff to keep Bradford holiday-makers' travel plans on track

Bradford Telegraph and Argus: Karen Wright and her grandchildren Lewis Mitchell, Harvey Bendig and Emily Bendig, celebrate the news that their passports can be collected Karen Wright and her grandchildren Lewis Mitchell, Harvey Bendig and Emily Bendig, celebrate the news that their passports can be collected

Extra staff have been drafted in to deal with a jump in demand for passports – as another Bradford family faced a stressful race against time to go on holiday.

Karen Wright is the latest in a line of people from the district that have experienced problems getting their travel documents back from the passport office.

Local MPs Philip Davies, Mike Wood and Gerry Sutcliffe say they have been inundated with calls from people worried they were going to have to cancel travel plans – but the Home Office claims there is no backlog.

The passport office has admitted bringing in extra staff and operating seven days a week – but added it has been processing more than 95 per cent of passport applications with target turnaround times.

A spokesman for the passport office said: “We have been experiencing an early summer peak in demand for passports, which seems to be in part due to the improving economy and a rise in holiday bookings.

“We have brought in extra staff to respond to the extra demand, we are operating seven days a week and our couriers are delivering passports within 24 hours of being produced.

“There is no backlog. We have issued three million passports to customers in the UK since the start of the year, more than one million since the start of April, more than 95 per cent of which were processed within our target turnaround times.

“We would remind people of our existing advice to customers – allow plenty of time when applying for a new or renewed passport as a passport will not be issued until the necessary security checks have been done.

“And do not book your travel until you have received your passport.”

Mrs Wright, of Holme Wood, is scheduled to take her grandchildren to Benidorm on Tuesday as part of a trip for her sister’s 70th birthday. It was also to give the youngsters a break from their mum Kelly’s battle with cancer and to give her some respite, too.

She applied for a renewal passport for 11-year-old Lewis, and new ones for Harvey, six, and Emily, four, on April 29.

Mrs Wright, who said Harvey and Emily’s dad died three years ago – at the same time as their mum was diagnosed with cancer – meant to apply for the passports in January. However, she got sidetracked when Kelly took a turn for the worse and spent the next three months in and out of hospital.

“The passports were the last thing on my mind,” said Mrs Wright.

It was only after the Telegraph & Argus intervened that the family received a call late yesterday to say Mrs Wright could collect the passport tomorrow.

She said: “This is a once-in-a-lifetime trip, with the aim to provide their mother with some much-needed respite as she is currently battling cancer and is receiving ongoing chemotherapy treatment.”

Rachael Delaney, of Queensbury, waited six weeks for five-year-old daughter Zara’s passport to arrive and cruise ship singer Louise George, of Baildon, missed out on a contract with a cruise liner when her passport failed to arrive on time.

Irrespective of the reason for the trip, a passport takes a certain amount of time to be issued. I always recall, when I worked in an office a sign up saying " An error on your part dies not mean an emergency on Mine".

OK - I understand the reasons given for taking the kids out of school on this occasion and have every sympathy for a family that has evidently had more than their fair share of bad news; and I really hope and pray that Kelly makes progress in the right direction.

That said, it is really depressing that none of you can string together a correctly spelt or grammatically accurate sentence. Not just those who are justifiably up in arms about the callous reaction of some posters on here, but most of the 'critics' too. Maybe if you realised how appallingly poor your written English is, you would, perhaps, place time in school above the well-deserved holiday - no matter how well deserved it is.

A question for you then. In the circumstances there's a tough choice to be made, but parenting is full of tough choices; surely the best thing for the children would be to try and instill in them a respect and understanding for the value for their education. Do you think that taking them out of school, for whatever reason, does this?

Finally, no matter what you think, the law of the land is clear on this; so there is also the issue of teaching one's children to ignore those laws which are 'inconvenient' or 'stupid'. Once you've got hold of that little concept, all legality becomes a matter of personal opinion - you might like to bear that in mind the next time you voice your opinion about an uninsured driver, an illegal off-road biker, some motorist speeding past the school when you are taking your kids in, etc. etc....after all maybe those people just see those particular laws as 'inconvenient' or 'stupid'. Perhaps they were taught at an early age that you only need to obey the rules when it suits you to do so.

The family in this case will do what they feel they have to do, with the best of intentions but there is an old saying about good intentions...

She's the biggest inspiration to me and any one who knows kelly, if you knew her life story what she has to battle each and every day and gone through omg there's noone no stronger then kelly I can guarantee that. To be both mum and dad to 4 children aswell I completely take my hat of to her.insted of judging and been key bored worries have some god dam decency. .

OK - I understand the reasons given for taking the kids out of school on this occasion and have every sympathy for a family that has evidently had more than their fair share of bad news; and I really hope and pray that Kelly makes progress in the right direction.

That said, it is really depressing that none of you can string together a correctly spelt or grammatically accurate sentence. Not just those who are justifiably up in arms about the callous reaction of some posters on here, but most of the 'critics' too. Maybe if you realised how appallingly poor your written English is, you would, perhaps, place time in school above the well-deserved holiday - no matter how well deserved it is.

A question for you then. In the circumstances there's a tough choice to be made, but parenting is full of tough choices; surely the best thing for the children would be to try and instill in them a respect and understanding for the value for their education. Do you think that taking them out of school, for whatever reason, does this?

Finally, no matter what you think, the law of the land is clear on this; so there is also the issue of teaching one's children to ignore those laws which are 'inconvenient' or 'stupid'. Once you've got hold of that little concept, all legality becomes a matter of personal opinion - you might like to bear that in mind the next time you voice your opinion about an uninsured driver, an illegal off-road biker, some motorist speeding past the school when you are taking your kids in, etc. etc....after all maybe those people just see those particular laws as 'inconvenient' or 'stupid'. Perhaps they were taught at an early age that you only need to obey the rules when it suits you to do so.

The family in this case will do what they feel they have to do, with the best of intentions but there is an old saying about good intentions...
The way I see it this whole thing wasn't nothing to do with were we live or when the kids were going on holiday, it was about the struggle on getting passports etc. so why people started spinning it on to the kids eduction etc is beyond me, if the school thought the kids were behind or even had too much time off I'm pretty sure they would off disagreed on them going. All we wanted to do was make people aware off the fact, the need off passports was on the rise. Not talk about my kids! Anyway regardless to what anyone thinks, if going on holiday puts a smile on there faces then that's good enough for me..

As stated by Kelly herself, it's about the rise of passport turnarounds etc.
So everyone should cut all this crap about kids missing out on their education blah blah.
What harm is a week or 2 out of school actually gonna do?

Some of the people on here need to get a life, passports are a joke even when you apply for them on time there still late. If Kelly wants to allow her children to be taken out of school thats her business. Kelly has gone through so much over the last three years, she is a brilliant mum and would walk on hot coals for her children so leave her and her children alone and stop hiding behind your little secret codes and passwords on here. Shame on you all.

Finally, no matter what you think, the law of the land is clear on this; so there is also the issue of teaching one's children to ignore those laws which are 'inconvenient' or 'stupid'. Once you've got hold of that little concept, all legality becomes a matter of personal opinion - you might like to bear that in mind the next time you voice your opinion about an uninsured driver, an illegal off-road biker, some motorist speeding past the school when you are taking your kids in, etc. etc....after all maybe those people just see those particular laws as 'inconvenient' or 'stupid'. Perhaps they were taught at an early age that you only need to obey the rules when it suits you to do so. The family in this case will do what they feel they have to do, with the best of intentions but there is an old saying about good intentions...[/p][/quote]QUOTE FROM: food_for_thought "That said, it is really depressing that none of you can string together a correctly spelt or grammatically accurate sentence. Not just those who are justifiably up in arms about the callous reaction of some posters on here, but most of the 'critics' too. Maybe if you realised how appallingly poor your written English is, you would, perhaps, place time in school above the well-deserved holiday - no matter how well deserved it is." -------------------- -------------------- -------------------- ----------------- Oh dear, the grammer police are out in force again..........This is not what the article in the T&A is about, or anything about where Kelly lives or taking her kids out of school. As stated by Kelly herself, it's about the rise of passport turnarounds etc. So everyone should cut all this crap about kids missing out on their education blah blah. What harm is a week or 2 out of school actually gonna do? This story has now been overshadowed by silly ppl writing silly useless comments.[/p][/quote]Yyyaaaawwwwwnnnnn[/p][/quote]Lol Kelly, my thoughts exactly! I didn't write the first bit about the spelling/grammar, it was quoted from the section food_for_thought. Just wanted to highlight that part, as it's of no relevance. My rant starts underneath the lines! (-----------------) Wanted to clear that up just in case you thought I was banging on about it lol. :-) MylomMoggy

I'm am astounded that anyone could be so abhorrent to turn this into a sounding board about the children not being in school.
I hope and pray that you small minded and clearly self centered people never go through what this family have, that said maybe if you did in the future it would be karma.
I am disgusted by some of the comments and if that's the kind if people that live in Howarth thank The Lord I don't.
You judge Kelly and her family then prepared to be judged!
You think you are better than others because you can spell or your grammar is better or you live in Howarth!! You are the most disgusting example of human beings I have come across, you hearts are cold and your thoughts are sick.
I would rather have learned to love and to care about others than to be grammatically correct!
Kelly I imagine if these people had gone through a quarter of what you have, they couldn't have got through it.
There views are unimportant as are they.
Good luck with your next chemo and I hope your children have a wonderful time.
By the way I don't give a toss if my spelling is poor or you find a grammar mistake!!
How sad this is what we live amongst no wonder the country is such a mess

If the world had less of them and more people like Kelly and her family what a nicer place it would be.

Some of the comments above are frankly disgusting. What happened to the concept of social solidarity, However, everybody's missing the real point of the story.

The passport office was privatised by the Tories because, they said, the service would be quicker and better. Clearly it isn't, but the Home Office, also run by the Tories says there is no problem. Just as the Tories claim our electricity, gas , water supply, rail fares represent fantastic value for money.

Fantastic value that is for the big businesses that bought them at knock down prices and proceeded to make monopoly profits ever since. The Tories are not on your side. They stand for greed, inequality and unfairness.

While I respect and understand the reasons why the children need this holiday, the passport application clearly states do not book an holiday until the passport is received and situations like this help contribute to a backlog of passport applications, if everybody tried to queue jump no wonder they can never catch up.

Give it a rest, I remember getting my first passport, labour in power, non privatised, recommended to allow 3 months before going abroad to apply. Far better now.

The moral of this tale is apply for passport in good time, it's always been the case that it's really busy at this time of year. Don't leave it to last minute.

the only people that think like that are dole dossers who have been sanctioned there are plenty of jobs just people too lazy to get up and find one.
as for the passport issue there would not have been one if the family had read the guidelines it clearly states not to book a holiday until you have received your passport or allow 3 moths for you to get it trying to get one a few week before you go away at this time of year has always been hard.

OK - I understand the reasons given for taking the kids out of school on this occasion and have every sympathy for a family that has evidently had more than their fair share of bad news; and I really hope and pray that Kelly makes progress in the right direction.

That said, it is really depressing that none of you can string together a correctly spelt or grammatically accurate sentence. Not just those who are justifiably up in arms about the callous reaction of some posters on here, but most of the 'critics' too. Maybe if you realised how appallingly poor your written English is, you would, perhaps, place time in school above the well-deserved holiday - no matter how well deserved it is.

A question for you then. In the circumstances there's a tough choice to be made, but parenting is full of tough choices; surely the best thing for the children would be to try and instill in them a respect and understanding for the value for their education. Do you think that taking them out of school, for whatever reason, does this?

Finally, no matter what you think, the law of the land is clear on this; so there is also the issue of teaching one's children to ignore those laws which are 'inconvenient' or 'stupid'. Once you've got hold of that little concept, all legality becomes a matter of personal opinion - you might like to bear that in mind the next time you voice your opinion about an uninsured driver, an illegal off-road biker, some motorist speeding past the school when you are taking your kids in, etc. etc....after all maybe those people just see those particular laws as 'inconvenient' or 'stupid'. Perhaps they were taught at an early age that you only need to obey the rules when it suits you to do so.

The family in this case will do what they feel they have to do, with the best of intentions but there is an old saying about good intentions...

Oh dear, the grammer police are out in force again..........This is not what the article in the T&A is about, or anything about where Kelly lives or taking her kids out of school.
As stated by Kelly herself, it's about the rise of passport turnarounds etc.
So everyone should cut all this crap about kids missing out on their education blah blah.
What harm is a week or 2 out of school actually gonna do?
This story has now been overshadowed by silly ppl writing silly useless comments.
Yyyaaaawwwwwnnnnn
Lol Kelly, my thoughts exactly!
I didn't write the first bit about the spelling/grammar, it was quoted from the section food_for_thought. Just wanted to highlight that part, as it's of no relevance. My rant starts underneath the lines! (-----------------)

Why are people "stuck-up" because they have an opinion on a story that's been made public in the local newspaper and have made remarks about some of the atrocious grammar in these posts? Inverted snobbery is as distasteful as your imagined snobbery. The moral of the story is to not inform the local rag of your story if the fault lies with your own shortcomings. As for the remark about the passport office not functioning correctly....surely, if the rules had been adhered to, then this fiasco wouldn't have happened and the general public wouldn't even have been aware of the situation.

there is nothing wrong with the passport office the fact of the matter is they left it till the last minute to apply for them during a very busy time.there would not have even been a story if they had read the guideline on the passport website.
this is just a little snippet from the passport website please pay extra attention to the bit in brackets at the end
It should take 6 weeks to get your first adult passport once your form has been received. For all other application types, it should take 3 weeks.

It can take longer if more information is needed or your application hasn’t been filled out correctly.

You should use a different service if you need your passport urgently.

(Don’t book travel until you have a valid passport - doing so is at your own risk.)

A British passport is not mandatory if travel is planned across the 28 member states of the EU plus countries such as Norway, Switzerland or Iceland, pus several smaller states like Monaco, Andorra, San Morino or Liechenstein.

What is required is a National Identity card to prove where you are normally resident.

The price of £72.50 seems to be an excessive price for a passport to me, particularly when British Overseas residents pay only around half of this amount. A sautary thought is that the photo-type of driving license provides such national indentity, but this costs £85 to obtain.

Well how come you can magically get a passport delivered the next day IF YOU PAY A CONSIDERABLE PREMIUM for an apparent 'dispatch rider'?? How is this a fair system?

Sorry but you are completely and utterly wrong in every aspect of that statement. Headteachers cannot support parents at all. The decision to "fine" lies with the council solely and is not influenced by the head teachers.

The school and council with automatically reject and application for authorised leave as laid down by the Government but you need not worry in Bradford as fines have been suspended anyway since January. This is due to a certain Bradford population that "often" take time to visit certain countries and fining them was deemed "unpopular" by the council therefore there's a blanket suspension on fines anyway
