To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the answer by Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon on 24 January (HL Deb, col 1020), how many Hong Kong servicemen have been given British nationality for crown service; how many such servicemen are eligible; and whether they intend to allow any more of those who served to be given British nationality, in line with the Armed Forces Military Covenant’s commitment to look after veterans for life.

The data requested is not readily available and could only be obtained at disproportionate cost

There are no plans to change current nationality requirements. In line with the Armed Forces Covenant, individuals and their families who enlisted and served in HM Forces are not disadvantaged as a result of that service.
