HC Deb 02 December 1919 vol 122 c251W

asked the Home Secretary if he is aware of the discontent created by the operation of the British Nationality and Status of Aliens Act, 1914, in regard to the refusal under that Act to recognise certain children of British subjects as British citizens; and if he proposes to take any action in the matter?


I am well aware of the point to which this question refers. It has already been referred to a special conference appointed by the Imperial War Conference of 1918 with a view to the promotion at a suitable opportunity of remedial legislation in concert with the Governments of other parts of the British Empire.
