The child, born in the United Kingdom, of a foreign national, who seeks to be recognised as stateless, but who can under the law of the parent’s nationality, obtain citizenship of that country by descent by registering their birth, may properly be regarded as admissible to that country , as set out at paragraph 403(c) of HC 395. Though a greater intensity of scrutiny is appropriate in a case such as this, it remains the case that the decision that an individual is not stateless can only be impugned on public law principles.
