I don't think that's how it works.
The British belts are competed for, naturally, by British prospects, for example someone like Paul Daley, despite being British and thus eligable, is not an up and coming prospect and as such wouldn't compete for the British belt.
If the British champion was to defend his title several times and raise his profile he would presumably become worthy of a 'world' title shot, but winning the British belt is in my view at least more of a belt for British prospects.
