UK has not rendered individuals stateless

Sixteen dual national individuals have had their UK nationality removed since May 2010 in accordance with British Nationality Act 1981 s.40, Immigration Minister Mark Harper has said.

He said that the British nationality law only requires the Secretary of State to consider statelessness when deciding whether to remove British citizenship from individuals if it is conducive to the public good to do so.

Mr. Harper confirmed that the Government has not rendered an individual stateless when removing their UK nationality on conducive grounds. To do so, he said, would be in contravention of the British Nationality Act (1981).
