Call to make naturalisation courses free

A spokesperson for Eberhard van der Laan, Minister for Integration, says the minister will propose to the Cabinet on Friday that local councils offer free naturalisation courses to immigrants. At present, councils charge individuals 270 euros to attend such courses. Mr Van der Laan believes this discourages many people from taking part. He hopes that scrapping the fee will increase the number of participants throughout the country.
