They are proposing to do it, but it is not finalised yet. I for one will not take part in it for a variety of reasons.
This people seem very desperate to make as much money from immigrant, to the extent of violating EU law, by charging fees which a British Citizen cannot be charged. It is outrageous.
I believe lots of people will be prepared to go for it, for job reasons and peace of mind, but why should it be , that richer people are able to get a quicker answer but poorer people don't.
