So what does this mean for TNT’s petition? No decision has yet been made to rename UKBA. It’s going to be the same staff, the same bosses – the same people dealing with your applications.

That means our demands remain the same. We’ll be keeping the pressure on, and we need your support. Our government e-petition has been approved – visit There’s still work to be done.
