Depends on the arrival time. Passengers on the early morning arrival compete with passengers from other long-haul routes, while the mid-afternoon arrival tends to guarantee relatively smooth sailing.

Back in the pre-T5 days when I travelled with a non-UK passport, I went though a few queues that took more than half an hour to clear.

Having a British passport means I don't have any real experience of queing there...
Thanks!!
Having had much experience at LHR on a Malaysian passport... it's dependent on whether he or she has Fast Track and also what time of the day it is. 20-30 minutes is a good estimate.

Are they coming in on MH ?. If so please note that they move to T4 later this month:

Quote:
Effective 29 October 2009, Malaysia Airlines will shift operations from Terminal 3 to Terminal 4 at London Heathrow Airport (LHR).

With the move to the newly refurbished Terminal 4, passengers can expect a more pleasant airport experience which combines new levels of comfort and convenience. Highlights include our new Golden Lounge located near our regular Gate 6, which provides a respite for First and Business Class passengers with its luxurious amenities and panoramic view.

Below are our final and maiden flights at the respective terminals:

Terminal 3
Last arriving flight: MH4 on 28 Oct
Last departing flight: MH1 on 28 Oct

Terminal 4
First arriving flight: MH2 on 29 Oct
First departing flight: MH3 on 29 Oct
Will miss this by a couple of weeks, which is a shame as I wanted to check out their new Golden Lounge at T4.

At LHR T3 30-60 minutes was my norm.
