Integration course fee to be scrapped

Integration minister Eberhard van der Laan is set to scrap the €270 immigrants have to pay to attend a compulsory integration course, reports news agency ANP.

He thinks this will stimulate more immigrants to attend the courses.
Van der Laan will present his proposal to the cabinet on Friday, a spokesman confirmed to Trouw.
