The Nationality, Immigration and Asylum Act 2002 required United Kingdom residents seeking British citizenship to be tested to show "a sufficient knowledge of English, Welsh or Scottish Gaelic", to have "a sufficient knowledge about life in the United Kingdom" and to take a citizenship oath and a pledge at a civic ceremony.
The Government stated its intention in the White Paper Secure Borders, Safe Haven to raise the status of becoming a British citizen and to offer more help to that end.
So an independent group was appointed with the remit "To advise the Home Secretary on the method, conduct and implementation of a 'Life in the United Kingdom' naturalisation test", which implied defining what should be meant by "sufficient" in both the cases of ability in language and knowledge of society and civic institutions.
