HC Deb 18 October 1982 vol 29 c31W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will give the rules and regulations concerning the holding of dual nationality and the actual or estimated numbers of persons who have, or can claim, dual nationality.

Mr. Raison:

Neither our current nationality law nor the British Nationality Act 1981, which is due to come into force on 1 January 1983, contains any general restriction on the holding of dual nationality. No information is available about the numbers of persons who have or can claim dual nationality.
