HC Deb 12 July 1954 vol 530 cc9-10W
Captain Kerby

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department the number of British subjects by naturalisation who have been convicted of smuggling and other criminal offences since 6th July, 1945 how many of these were subsequently denaturalised by proceedings under the British Naturalisation Acts; and if he will state their names at the time of their original entry into the United Kingdom and at the time of their denaturalisation.

Sir D. Maxwell Fyfe

I regret that the information requested in the first part of the Question is not available. Since July, 1945, two persons have been deprived of citizenship of the United Kingdom and Colonies on account of having been sentenced to imprisonment for a term of not less than 12 months within five years after becoming naturalised. Particulars of these cases were published in the London Gazette on 29th January, 1952, and 20th March, 1953.
