Baroness Thornton

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they will replace the current application forms for foreign nationals wishing to apply for leave to remain in the United Kingdom. [HL3325]

Lord Williams of Mostyn

The current application forms expire on 14 October 1998. Revised versions of the seven existing forms have been prescribed. These will be valid until 14 October 1999. From today until 14 October 1998, applications may be made either on the newly prescribed forms or on the existing versions. Only the newly prescribed versions may be used for applications made on or after 15 October 1998. The new forms are available from the Application Forms Unit on 0181 760 2233, and copies have been placed in the Library.
