HC Deb 15 March 1976 vol 907 cc366-7W
Mr. Peter Rees

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs how many residents of Rhodesia there are at the present time holding British passports which would permit them to enter the United Kingdom for permanent settlement.

Mr. Ennals

There may be almost as many again who, although not United Kingdom citizens, could claim the right of abode by reason of patriality.
