HC Deb 06 November 1978 vol 957 cc39-40W
Mr. Farr

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how the various fees in respect of the registration and issue of certificates to aliens were calculated.

Mr. Merlyn Rees

In accordance with the Government's policy, the fees to be charged to people required under the Immigration Act 1971 to register with the police are reviewed annually, so that an appropriate part can be recovered of the costs incurred by police forces in meeting the requirements laid upon them by the Immigration (Registration with Police) Regulations 1972—as amended. Due regard is paid to the effect that increases in the fees may have on people required to pay them.
