  • Lin Homer: Mr Sedgwick, that his reference was to the particular issue he was talking about. My view is that the organisation has slowly but surely got better. I think there is still much to do, Mr Whiteman and the Home Secretary and the Minister still have a lot to do, but I think this is now a broadly functioning organisation. The simple fact that there is no longer a legacy of half a million unresolved cases, which we inherited in 2006, means that the asylum system, for instance, is now functioning well. That is a movement forwards, but there is still a great deal to do and I think I was the first to recognise that when I gave evidence on 27 Nov. [145]
