§ 12. Sir GEOFFREY BUTLER
asked the Home Secretary whether he is yet able to recommend to the House the introduction of a Clause supplementary to the Nationality Acts enabling British women on their marriage to foreigners to retain their nationality unless and until by the municipal law of their husbands' country they acquire his nationality; whether he has yet received from the various Dominion Governments their views upon this suggestion; and, if so, whether these views are friendly or unfriendly to it?
I am informed that the reply of the Canadian Government on this subject is still being awaited, and the position is therefore as indicated in my answer to my hon. Friend on the 19th November last. I understand that the attention of that Government is again being drawn to the matter.
