HC Deb 12 May 2003 vol 405 cc67-8W
Fiona Mactaggart

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department when he expects the internal inquiries into naturalisation application B1090943, commenced on 21 September 2001, to be completed; and why these inquiries have been delayed. [111464]

Beverley Hughes

The inquiries have now been completed and we should be in a position to reach a decision soon. There has been no avoidable delay. Some cases take longer to resolve than others, depending upon the particular features of the case.
