HC Deb 22 April 1994 vol 241 c703W
Mr. Hunter

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what is his policy in respect of British citizens who do not wish to have European Union citizenship conferred on them.

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

The treaty on European Union provides that every person holding the nationality of a member state shall be a citizen of the Union and there is no provision for a derogation from this article.
