§ 87. Sir T. Moore
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he is yet in a position to make a statement regarding the retention of British nationality by women who have married foreigners or British subjects resident in the Dominions.
§ Mr. Ede
British born women who marry British subjects resident in the Dominions do not under existing law lose British nationality but the question of allowing British born women who in certain cases lose British nationality on marriage to foreigners is one of the nationality matters to be discussed with representatives of the Dominions at a conference to he held early in the New Year.
