Of course it's been serious and delayed many things but I'm getting really fed up with the Covid excuse being used for everything at the moment. My husband had to stop driving temporarily in January following a collapse - he is still trying to get his licence back and has been told his application will probably not even be looked at by DVLA until the New Year! I'm sure you can guess the reason!
A friend recently moved house and her solicitor added £45 onto the bill, despite the fact everything had been done via email saying it was due to - go on - guess again!
However compared to the suffering of so many these are totally irrelevant, but very irritating.

I’m glad someone else answered this as, without looking it up, I thought they had been trying to rushing it through for the end of this year, I didn’t realise it was going to be quite so late in the end.

Fortunately it is not the census I am waiting for.

Joan - the 1921 census was never meant to be released until January 2022. It has now been delayed until either late January or maybe even slightly later in the year because of delays in transcribing because of Covid.

Apparently the Scottish 1921 census will not be released until the second half of next year.

The publication of the 1921 Scottish census has been delayed.

Next January at the earliest.

Yes, the question has been asked many times!

The Census was released to the company Find My Past, but they have to get it all translated into digital format.

Initially it will only be available to their subscribers, and probably at an extra cost.
