HC Deb 03 August 1962 vol 664 cc166-7W
Mr. Channon

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether, in view of the limited interest of the detailed information provided, he is satisfied regarding the need for the publication in its present form of the annual return of persons naturalised as citizens of the United Kingdom and Colonies; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Brooke

I have come to the conclusion that it is no longer necessary to publish all the details hitherto included in this return. The return for 1961, which has recently been presented, will therefore be the last in the present form; but I propose that the statistical tables, which are of general interest, shall continue to be published annually.
