HC Deb 24 March 1938 vol 333 c1393W
Mr. Mander

asked the Home Secretary what arrangements are being made for Austrians now in Great Britain who do not desire to become German subjects?

Sir S. Hoare

The question what is to be the national status of such persons under the law of their own country is not a matter which can be regulated by His Majesty's Government; but if the hon. Member's suggestion is that special arrangements should be made to enable such persons to acquire British nationality, I would refer him to the statement which I made at the end of questions on Tuesday last.
