HC Deb 05 March 1917 vol 91 c22
34. Mr. KING

asked the Home Secretary whether he will state the terms on which naturalisation will be granted during and after the war to such Russian subjects who may under the agreement with Russia take service in the British Army; whether at the present time applications have been received, but not yet granted to Russians, for naturalization here; if so, in how many cases; and whether such applications, if complying with the existing law, will be forthwith granted to Russian subjects who, being of military age, are ready to accept service in the British Army?


The Government intend to propose legislation on this subject, and it is undesirable to discuss the details of the proposed legislation before a Bill is introduced.
