Call to make naturalisation courses free
Minister for Integration Eberhard van der Laan to propose making naturalisation courses free of charge.
THE HAGUE—Eberhard van der Laan, Minister for Integration, 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. Van der Laan says this discourages many people from taking part. He hopes that scrapping the fee will increase the number of participants throughout the country.
