Volume 707: debated on Thursday 29 January 2009


Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government whether there is a legal obligation on United Kingdom passport holders who obtain a passport from another country to report that they have done so to the Identity and Passport Service; and, if so, what sanctions apply to those who do not do so. [HL971]

British nationality law contains no restriction on British nationals also holding other nationalities and therefore the right to hold other passports. There is no obligation to report the acquisition or renewal of other passports.
