Bucharest (Jan. 26)
What is happening about the promised Nationality Bill to regulate the position of the thousands of Staatenlose in the country, who are fully entitled to citizenship, but having no citizenship papers, are in danger of being expelled at any moment from the country, Deputy Joseph Fischer asked in an interpellation addressed to-day to the Minister of Justice following up the question put to him last week on the same question by Deputy Landau (reported in the J.T.A. Bulletin of the 24th. inst.). The King’s Speech, Deputy Fischer reminded the House, contained a definite promise that the citizenship law would be introduced during this session. The Staatenlose are in a very critical situation, he said, and it is essential that the Government should do something to give citizenship to those who are entitled to it, so that they should be saved from the continual fear of deportation.
