Since our letters to our MP and the disappointing response (see below) here is the situation as at 7 May 2022 as reported by the BBC:
Groups representing Britons hoping to host Ukrainians plan to take the first step towards a class action case - and have employed a leading barrister.
Latest figures show that of the 86,100 people given Ukraine scheme visas, 27,100 have so far arrived in the UK.
The government said it had simplified the process and boosted staffing numbers for the scheme.
A spokesperson added it was "now processing visas as quickly as they come in - enabling thousands more Ukrainians to come through our uncapped routes".
More than 5.5 million people have fled Ukraine since Russia's invasion began on 24 February, according to the UN's refugee agency.
The figures speak for themselves

The Four aims of Methodists
Methodism's activities, both alone and with ecumenical and secular partners, are based on four aims known as Our Calling:
· To increase awareness of God's presence and to celebrate God's love
· To help people to grow and learn as Christians through mutual support and care
· To be a good neighbour to people in need and to challenge injustice
· To make more followers of Jesus Christ.
