Over this Michael Ashcroft, Lord Paul thing and non doms.
There\’s much heat and light being expended upon whether someone who is a non dom (and thus not paying the same taxes on worldwide income as someone who is dom) can be a member of the legislature.
OK. And now the research we\’d like to see.
What is the citizenship and domicile status of everyone in the House of Commons?
For you don\’t have to be a UK citizen to be an MP (Eire, Commonwealth or EU is sufficient). I don\’t actually know whether you need to be a citizen to be domiciled here (I can imagine the rules could work either way).
But are there any MPs who are not UK citizens? I know of at least one MEP, but what about MPs?
And how would we find out?
