British Nationality

Volume 476: debated on Monday 2 June 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice which proposals in Lord Goldsmith's citizenship review report have been accepted by the Government; and if he will make a statement. (206823)

Lord Goldsmith's review of citizenship made a significant contribution to the current debate about modernising our constitution and is an important step towards clarifying the legal and social rights and responsibilities that come with British citizenship.

The Government are currently considering proposals in the context of their wider reforms, including proposals set out in the Green Paper ‘The Path to Citizenship’, published on 20 February and forthcoming work on a possible Bill of Rights and Responsibilities and a Statement of Values.
