HC Deb 16 December 1948 vol 459 c1355
4. Mr. Sutcliffe

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what organisations are notified by his Department when a person is naturalised.

Mr. Ede

The police of the district from which the alien applied are notified and the grants of all naturalisation certificates are published in the London Gazette.

Mr. Sutcliffe

Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that immediately after naturalisation, a number of Poles in Somerset received letters inviting them to join the Labour Party? Can he indicate how their names and addresses could have been obtained so quickly; and will he makes inquiries?

Mr. Ede

The "London Gazette" is available to members of the Labour Party. Certainly no communication on the matter has been made from my office to the Labour Party. I recognise that they have been very zealous.
