Armed Forces: Commonwealth

Volume 464: debated on Tuesday 16 October 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence how many recruits from the new Commonwealth have applied to have their (a) spouse and (b) children join them in the UK in each of the last five years; and how many have applied for British citizenship since becoming members of the armed forces. (156325)

It is very much a personal decision as to whether non-British personnel bring their families over to the UK to join them, and whether serving members of the armed forces apply for British citizenship. The information requested is therefore not recorded by the Department.
