Use this Briefing on Fees to ask your Member of Parliament to call on the Government to act on our recommendations:
- The profit element should be removed from children’s registration fee in all cases, including where their right to register continues into adulthood. Children should not be prevented from registering as British simply because they cannot afford it.
- Children who cannot afford the fee should be granted a waiver of the entire fee.
- Where a child is ‘looked after’ by a local authority, there should be a fee exemption. This would prevent the shifting of costs from central to local government.
