Incorrect advice by the Government on citizenship
A correspondent has drawn my attention to the failure of the Government to post amendments that were made to the British Nationality Act 1981 by Parliament in the Immigration Act 2014 on the official Government website. The amendments were to add Sections 4E to 4J, enabling certain children whose parents weren't married at the time of their birth to acquire British citizenship.
I am tabling a question asking the Government to update the advice on their website, and to amend the site legislation.gov.uk.
It is unacceptable that false information is allowed to remain on the web on such an important matter as entitlement to citizenship.
