HC Deb 10 April 1933 vol 276 cc2166-7
18. Captain CAZALET

asked the Secretary for Foreign Affairs whether he can give the House any information as regards the new restrictions placed upon visas granted by European countries to British-born women holding Nansen passports and identity cards?

Is my right hon. Friend aware that the restrictions which are operative to-day are caused by the fact that British-born women do not possess the advantages of nationality now enjoyed by women in almost every country in Europe and in some of the Dominions as well?


My hon. and gallant Friend's question had to do with new restrictions placed upon visas of British-born women holding passports. British-born women are stateless because they are not at present British subjects, and, therefore, legislation would be needed.
