Expect slower processing times and fewer appointment slots

As per http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-22952808
Home Secretary Theresa May has agreed to substantial budget cuts of 7.7% at the Home Office but secured protection for counter-terror policing. Other areas, such as immigration, will be squeezed however.
more pain coming up...

Well, it's not like we are relying on some kind of governmental charity.

Just one average Tier 1 PEO appointment (for a family of 3) brings about 5,000 GBP revenue for a couple of hours of work. How many other private businesses have that kind of return?

If I was the Government, I would actually try and increase the number of UKBA staff.
