It's now 57 days and still waiting for me.

The UK government's Information Commissioner has recommended that I file an official complaint against the National Identification Service at New Scotland Yard as they are now in breach of the Data Protection Act which states that data must be provided within 40 days.

Sussex Police have been very helpful but they say that they have no powers over the NIS who appear to to be unwilling to communicate with anyone at the moment.

I sent off the complaint today. It could be a lengthy process involving the courts. At least this means that I can reclaim any losses but it's adding unnecessary delay to my visa application.

I suggest that anyone who has now waited longer than 40 days does the same otherwise you may wait forever.
