§ Mr. Tony Lloyd
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs under what circumstances financial assistance is denied to British citizens stranded outside the United Kingdom where no alternative means of support is immediately available.
§ Mr. Lennox-Boyd
British citizens who, through unforeseen circumstances, are without funds overseas and who have no other identifiable source of help may as a last resort be given a repayable loan to enable them to return to the United Kingdom. This facility, for which a fee is levied, is not normally available to certain categories, including British nationals normally resident overseas and dual nationals in the country of their second nationality.
