HC Deb 20 July 1982 vol 28 c81W
Mr. Arnold

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will take steps to increase the level of assets required for entry to the United Kingdom as a person of independent means.

Mr. Raison

This would require a change in the immigration rules. We are at present considering what changes in the rules should be made when the British Nationality Act 1981 is brought into force on 1 January next year.
