§ Colonel Ponsonby
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he is aware that an American citizen, the wife of a British subject, loses her American nationality if she votes at any British Parliamentary Election; and whether representations will be made to the U.S. Government to warn their nationals of their position.
§ Mr. Bevin
It is the responsibility of an American citizen who wishes to marry a British subject to make herself aware of her position under United States law, which I am informed is perfectly clear on this point. Consequently I see no reason for making representations to the United States Government.
