Firstly, I have adjusted the title of this topic, removing the reference to 6th April, as clearly these particular fees, if introduced, will not be introduced from that date.

Secondly, you mention regulations but UKBA acknowledges those regulations will need to be changed before the fees can be introduced. And that will take time.

Thirdly, are the fees legal in terms of the EU Directive? Very debatable, and I shall not be surprised if UKBA end up backing down on this issue. But we shall just have to wait and see.
