HC Deb 06 June 1940 vol 361 cc1008-9W
Mr. J. P. Morris

asked the Home Secretary whether he is aware that Sir Robert Mayer, a naturalised British subject of German birth, of 3, St. Helen's Place, London, E.C.3, fled the country to America during the Munich crisis but returned back to this country by the same ship when war was averted; that, on the outbreak of the present war, he again fled the country to America, where he still remains; and whether, in these circumstances, he will consider revoking this man's naturalisation papers?

Sir J. Anderson

The circumstances in which a certificate of naturalisation is liable to be revoked are set out in Section7 of the British Nationality and Status of Aliens Act, 1914. The circumstances described by my hon. Friend would not appear in themselves to render the certificate liable to revocation, but if he has any further information, I shall be glad to consider it.
