HC Deb 11 June 1934 vol 290 c1357W

asked the Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs whether, in view of the statement made by the British Government at Geneva that all disabilities of married women in matters of nationality should now be removed, and that as regards nationality a married woman should be in the same position as a man, married or unmarried, or any single woman, the Government will propose to the Dominions that united action by the British Commonwealth delegations at Geneva shall be taken to bring about throughout the world a uniform system whereby a woman shall have the same control over her nationality as has a man, and that the members of the British Commonwealth shall adhere to the Montevideo Nationality Treaty?


I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the reply which I gave to a similar question by him on 30th April last.
