On the ETA issue, the Home Office recommend applying for a British passport as British citizens are not subject to immigration control, however they have conceded that there is no legal or practical way to prevent dual nationals applying for an ETA in their non-British passport in order to travel to the UK.
Interesting! So unlike everywhere else they will effectively be allowing their citizens to hold both a passport AND a visa-equivalent. Does kind-of make a mockery of having the ETA system in existence at all if its got no links to anything like the UK Passport Agency records. Can't be that complicated cos even the Aussies can manage it!!

Could explain why I've been unable to find a definitive answer until now!
