Here is our timeline:
requested - Tuesday 27th September
Cos allocation granted - Tuesday 25 October

I would say ATM its about 4 weeks on average for an allocation. Good luck to everyone else getting one.
Thanks and good luck!

Each case will be either restricted or unrestricted and you can't use the wrong one. The good news is t...
