§ Baroness Anelay of St Johns
asked Her Majesty's Government:
(a) what progress has been made by the advisory group on naturalisation chaired by Sir Bernard Crick in determining the content of the naturalisation test; (b) what reports have been presented by the group to the Government; and (c) when the committee's final report will be published. [HL5813]
§ Lord Filkin
The "Life in the United Kingdom" Advisory Group has now held its inaugural meeting and has agreed to seek to publish an interim report by January 2003, followed by its final recommendations by Easter 2003. Sir Bernard Crick aims to provide me with the group's early thoughts on a programme structure which I shall share with noble Lords at Report stage of the Nationality, Immigration and Asylum Bill.
