HC Deb 31 October 1945 vol 415 c584W
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.
