HC Deb 06 December 1989 vol 163 c260W
Mr. Vaz

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he has any proposals for charging fees for(a) indefinite leave to remain, (b) extension of visitors' visas, (c) extension of student visas or (d) extension of business persons' visas.

Mr. Peter Lloyd

Section 9 of the Immigration Act 1988 makes provision for the charging of fees in connection with applications for, or the grant of, indefinite leave to remain. The Government are considering how and when that provision might be implemented and an announcement will be made at the apropriate time. There are no plans for the introduction of fees in connection with any category of limited leave to remain.
