How many years one has to stay on ILR (which was based on 5yrs WP) in order to qualify to apply for the british passport? Is it 1 year or have they changed?
Suppose ILR was issued on 1st Jan 2010, can one apply for british passport on 31st Jan 2010?
Thanks

It is still 1 Year subject to other conditions (not out for than 90 days in that year, no criminal convictions etc).
