The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) plans to centralise in the UK its overseas consular birth and death registration service by the end of 2014, and will begin centralisation of this service from April. This requires amending part of the British Nationality Act (BNA) 1981. Following a public consultation, the FCO has decided to proceed with amending the BNA by means of a Legislative Reform Order (LRO) made under the Legislative and Regulatory Reform Act 2006. The LRO, with its accompanying Explanatory Document, was laid before Parliament on 5 December 2013. More information can be found on the LRO consultation page, which has the Consultation Document, Impact Assessment, Summary of Responses, Government Response, LRO and Explanatory Document.
