House of Lords written question – answered on 9th July 2012.
Alert me about debates like this
To ask Her Majesty's Government whether rights of abode have been introduced for Ascension Island; and if not why not.
There is no right of abode on Ascension and the Government have no plans to introduce such a right. To do so would fundamentally change the nature of the territory and bring unacceptable costs and contingent liabilities to the UK taxpayer.
