HC Deb 20 November 2000 vol 357 cc31-2W
Mr. Rowe

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs how many British citizens resident in Zimbabwe have been affected by the actions of the Zimbabwean Government which have recently been ruled illegal by the Supreme Court; and if he will make a statement. [138839]

Mr. Hain

British nationals overseas are not obliged to register with British missions. Those that do register are not asked about their property holdings. It is therefore impossible to say how many British citizens might be affected by the Supreme Court ruling in Zimbabwe on 10 November.
