Number of Non-Priority Applications remaining in Dec 2018

Satish made this Official Information request to Ministry of Business, Innovation & Employment

This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for Satish to read recent responses and update the status.

From: Satish

Dear Ministry of Business, Innovation & Employment,

Could you please help me to understand the number of applications remaining in the queue from 19th Dec to 31st Dec 2018.

Also, I would like to understand how many applications were lodged during the Christmas break (from 19th Dec 2018 to Jan 2019 as well), each day break up like on 2nd Jan 150, 3rd Jan 100 Applications and so on.

I understand many people who had lodged applications in mid-2019 from Non-Priority Queue have got CO's assigned (would understand it might be because of the Escalation or had met the priority queue), so why there is inconstancy in the application allocation? and is there any queue within Non Priority queue like people who are in LTSSL. Please confirm

Yours faithfully,

Satish
