HC Deb 14 July 1980 vol 988 c352W
Mr. Heddle

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether his Department has received any representations seeking an amendment to the British Nationality Act 1948 to enable Crown service to confer automatic citizenship of the United Kingdom and colonies; and whether it is his intention to amend the Act in that respect.

Mr. Raison

We have no record of any such representation. A reference to the acquisition of citizenship by virtue of Crown service will be included in the White Paper to be published shortly.
