§ Mr. GERSHOM STEWART
I have an Amendment on the Paper which I shall not press—to leave out the words "and allegiance," in paragraph (a) ["any person born within His Majesty's dominions and allegiance"], and to insert instead thereof the words "specified in the First Schedule of this Act," if I receive an assurance from the right hon. Gentleman in charge of the Bill that it will not in any way increase our responsibilities as regards our Oriental fellow subjects as it at present stands.
I can assure the hon. Gentleman that it will in no way alter the position as it is at present.
The Amendment in the name of the hon. Member for Stirlingshire (Dr. Chapple) is beyond the scope of the Bill.
