Right of Abode: Hong Kong

(asked on 3rd February 2020) - View Source

Question to the Home Office:

To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answer by Lord Bates on 26 January 2016 (HL4968), whether they have completed their assessment of the request of former members of the Hong Kong Military Service Corps and the Hong Kong Royal Navy Service for the right of abode in the UK; and if so, what was the outcome of that assessment.

This question was answered on 17th February 2020

Under the British Nationality Selection Scheme, that was introduced in 1990 and ran until 1 July 1997, a limited number of Hong Kong Military Service Corps personnel who were settled in Hong Kong could apply to register as a British citizen.

We are giving careful consideration to representations made on behalf of those former Hong Kong Military Service Corps personnel who were unable to obtain citizenship through the selection scheme.
