Kelly Tolhurst – 2016 Parliamentary Question to the Home Office

The below Parliamentary question was asked by Kelly Tolhurst on 2016-03-04.

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, whether she has had discussions with her EU counterparts on citizenship-for-investment schemes.

James Brokenshire

We are monitoring such schemes and are in contact with other EU Member States where appropriate. Every country has the right to decide its own citizenship laws, but we would object if another Member State made changes that could lead to abuse of free movement rights.
