Dear House of Commons Commission,

I would like to know how many MPs have requested dual-nationality to an EU country;

1. Between 2010 and 2015
2. After 2015
3. Since June 23rd, 2016 (the EU referendum)

If possible, I would like these figures broken down by party.

I would also like the results to include MPs who have lost their seats due to either by-elections or General Elections.

If you do not hold this information, I would like to know which body does from which I can request it.

Yours faithfully,

Lee Davies

Thank you for your request for information. You asked for information
about the number of MPs who have requested dual-nationality to an EU
country, which we have sought to address below.

 

This information is not held by the House of Commons.  Members of
Parliament are not employees of the House and this information is not
routinely collected for business purposes, so we hold no records of this
nature.

 

You may wish to consider contacting individual MPs directly, to ask for
the information you seek, contact details are available at:
[1]http://www.parliament.uk/mps-lords-and-o....  However, Members
of Parliament are not public authorities for the purposes of the FOI Act
and therefore not obliged to respond to requests made under the Act. 
Similarly, the Act does not apply to political parties.

 

 

You may, if dissatisfied with the handling of your request, complain to
the House of Commons. Alternatively, if you are dissatisfied with the
outcome of your request you may ask the House of Commons to conduct an
internal review of any decision regarding your request. Complaints or
requests for internal review should be addressed to: Information Rights

Yours sincerely,
