Alert me about debates like this
To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of recent calls to restore the right of abode in the UK to holders of British National (Overseas) passports living in Hong Kong; and what action, if any, they intend to take as a result.
Holders of British National (Overseas) passports living in Hong Kong do not have a right of abode in the UK, unless they are also British citizens.
Their only route to acquire the right of abode in the UK would be to apply for British citizenship. There are no plans to change the law in this respect.
