Anyone else awaiting BMD's from the GRO? Way slower than normal at the moment. Have always received them within 7 calendar days on other orders this year. Was expecting 2 PDF uploads on Monday. Still not uploaded as of 1055 Friday. Plus another PDF upload on Wed. Plus one paper one that said was dispatched on Wed, but not in this mornings post.
