HC Deb 16 December 1971 vol 828 c188W
Q18. Mr. Deakins

asked the Prime Minister if he is satisfied with the co-ordination between the Home Department and the Foreign Office with regard to the definition of the term British national for the purposes of implementing the Treaty of Rome.

The Prime Minister

Yes. This definition does not conflict with the other definitions in the various statutes on nationality. Nor does it affect a person's status as a citizen of the United Kingdom and Colonies in our law in any way.
