asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department (1) how many people have acquired British citizenship as a result of the British Nationality (Falkland Islands) Act 1983; and what percentage of the total population of the Falkland Islands this represents;(2) how many applications are still pending for British citizenship under the British Nationality (Falkland Islands) Act 1983.

We have no record of the number of persons who acquired British citizenship automatically under section 1 of the Act. No application under section 2 of the Act for registration as a British citizen has been received.
