Please don't be surprised if EGoodhue doesn't reply to this - as you'll see on earlier posts, she is at present on maternity leave from work, expecting her third child shortly, and she is already going far beyond what she intended to do during her resting time by keeping in touch with her contacts at INZ in order to update people here on the threads with the latest news on the official line about all the backlogs. I've answered your question on another thread.
