HC Deb 11 February 1982 vol 17 c426W
Mr. Arthur Davidson

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will consider the possibility of introducing staged payments of the substantial fees required for naturalisation or registration purposes under the British Nationality Act 1981.

Mr. Raison

We have no plans to introduce staged payments. To do so would complicate the administrative procedures and so lead to increased costs, which would have to be reflected in higher fees.
