§ Mr. Madden
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department when Mr. Mohammad B. Mahmoudzadeh and Mrs. Nassrin Zare Mahmoudzadeh, whose reference is M259130, applied for British citizenship; and when a decision is to be taken on their application.
§ Mr. Renton
Mr. Mahmoudzadeh and his wife applied for naturalisation on 21 October 1987. The usual inquiries are in train, but I regret that I am unable to forecast when a decision on the application might be reached.
