Bahrain: Nationality

Question for Foreign and Commonwealth Office

UIN HL11983, tabled on 3 December 2018

To ask Her Majesty's Government what recent discussions they had with the government of Bahrain about that government reportedly revoking the citizenship of 805 individuals since 2012; whether they consider there is a trend to the rate of revocations; and what assessment they made of any such trend.

‚ÄčI refer the Noble Lord to my answer to question HL11328 which reiterated our concerns on the revocation of nationality where this leads to individuals becoming stateless. The Government of Bahrain are aware of our concerns on this matter and the British Government raises these concerns with them on a regular basis at all levels both in Manama and London. We will continue to do so.
