I apologise for interjecting but, to be fair, the staff in my constituency offices are experienced enough that they almost know, based on previous grants of domiciliary care allowance, whether an application will pass. That is important too because we are only putting ourselves through hardship with appeals. It is doubling the work. I understand that an appeal may relate to the timeline in cases where the Department are getting it out there and then we appeal and it is granted. The process needs to be reviewed or otherwise considered, however.
