HC Deb 05 July 1939 vol 349 c1308W
Viscountess Astor

asked the Home Secretary whether he will consider' introducing legislation to require an alien woman marrying a British subject and desiring British nationality to satisfy the same conditions as to residence, oath of allegiance, etc., as are required before an alien man is granted naturalisation?

Mr. Peake

The considerations referred to in the reply given on the 29th June to questions by the hon. Member for the Bilston Division of Wolverhampton (Mr. Hannah) and the hon. Member for Leyton, West (Mr. Sorensen) apply also to an alteration of the existing law relating to the nationality of alien women marrying British subjects.
