This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear Madam or Sir,

The United Kingdom annexed a Declaration (number 63) to the Treaty of Lisbon, "Declaration by the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland on the definition of the term 'nationals'", saying:

"In respect of the Treaties and the Treaty establishing the European Atomic Energy Community, and in any of the acts deriving from those Treaties or continued in force by those Treaties, the United Kingdom reiterates the Declaration it made on 31 December 1982 on the definition of the term 'nationals' with the exception that the reference to 'British Dependent Territories Citizens' shall be read as meaning 'British overseas territories citizens'."

Could you please provide a copy of the Declaration made on 31 December 1982 on the definition of the term 'nationals'? I was not able to locate this document in the public domain myself. Thank you very much.

(If possible, would you please use this email address for this present request, rather than any previous address you might have on file, as I am using a different email address to track each of my requests. Again, many thanks.)
