In 1981, new conditions for British nationality and redefinitions for British citizenship were passed stipulating that acceptance for settlement in the UK did not mean automatic British citizenship. More specific requirements were made in 2002 – anyone seeking British citizenship was required to sit a test to demonstrate their knowledge of life in Britain.
