HC Deb 16 May 1968 vol 764 c269W
34. Mr. Tilney

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department by what authority a citizen of the United Kingdom and Colonies can only obtain an exempting United Kingdom passport if his father or paternal grandfather was born in Great Britain and not if his mother or maternal grandparent was.

Mr. Ennals

The hon. Member is misinformed. A citizen of the United Kingdom and Colonies who holds a United Kingdom passport issued here is exempt from immigration control, regardless of the place of birth of his parents or grandparents. If the passport was issued abroad, he is exempt if he or either of his parents or grandparents were born in the United Kingdom.
