HC Deb 05 February 1976 vol 904 c719W
Mr. Powell

asked the Secretary of State for Defence what descriptions of nationality other than "British (Scots)" and "British (Irish)" are used in official documents in the Army in accordance with the normal practice; and whether he will reconsider this nomenclature.

Mr. Robert C. Brown

The following descriptions of nationality are used in Army records:

  • British (English)
  • British (Scottish)
  • British (Irish)
  • British (Welsh)
  • British (Channel Islander)
  • Manx
  • British (Overseas)
  • British naturalised

In addition, where there is dual nationality this is also recorded. I can see no reason to reconsider this nomenclature.
