HC Deb 29 October 1987 vol 121 c373W
Mr. Boswell

asked the Secretary of state for the Home Department what are the consequencies of Fiji's current withdrawal from the Commonwealth for these areas within the responsibilities of his Department, including specifically entitlement to register as British citizens and to vote in British elections.

Mr. Renton

Our understanding is that unless and until the law is changed citizens of Fiji who meet the requirements for registration as British citizens under section 7 of the British Nationality Act 1981 are eligible to be registered and retain the right to vote.
