Dr. Maguire Dr. Maguire
Dr. Maguire asked the Taoiseach if he will state whether the Government, while welcoming the reciprocal rights in the British Nationality Act, 1948, has protested against the inclusion in this Act of the nationals of the partitioned six counties and their treatment as common British citizens, to which at least some one half million of them object.
The Taoiseach John Aloysius Costello
