HC Deb 30 April 1947 vol 436 c244W
94. Mr. Prescott

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department the policy of His Majesty's Government towards the question of granting, in due course, British nationality to foreign volunteer workers in the United Kingdom.

Mr. Oliver

If the hon. Member is referring to aliens now being admitted to this country for work, this question will not arise until they can comply with the statutory qualifications for naturalisation, that is five years residence in the United Kingdom or Crown Service and an intention to continue to reside in the United Kingdom or Dominions.
