British Nationality

Question for Home Office

UIN HL5078, tabled on 5 January 2022

To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answer by Baroness Williams of Trafford on 7 October 2020 (HL8400), how many orders have been made under section 40(4A) of the British Nationality Act 1981, depriving a person of citizenship in circumstances where that person is rendered stateless; and when the next review of that power under section 40B of the British Nationality Act will be commissioned.

The power to deprive an individual of British citizenship under section 40(4A) of the British Nationality Act 1981 has not been used since its introduction in July 2014. As circumstances have not changed since the first statutory review of the power was published in April 2016, a further review of the power will be undertaken within 12 months of the power first being used.
