Not exactly the most comprehensive of arrangements, especially given the comparative difficulty and expense of travel in those days.

I wonder what it was that occasioned the abrupt ending of it?
They didn't have any difficulty coming and going by ship until the 1960s.

Enoch Powell had a hand in ending FOM, however it would have to be ended with increasing numbers.

Am in UK at moment. OH has taken a jar of Branston to India in past!
Can't get decent cheese there, had quite a 'serious' argument with a person ---that no --Kraft slices are NOT real cheese!

Tariff-free at the moment. But WTO tariffs will be £221 per tonne. https://www.bigissue.com/latest/no-d...eddar-deficit/

So, back to Commonwealth FoM. The British Nationality Act made them all British citizens, all 850 million of them. So that means it wasn't Commonwealth FoM but Brits exercising their right to enter the UK under UK law. The 1962 Act ended their right to automatically be classed as British citizens, but still didn't give an automatic right of free movement, so still no Commonwealth FoM. So where has this Commonwealth FoM you speak of come from?

Commonwealth nationals still have the right to enter the UK as visitors for up to 6 months in any 12-month period without needing a visit visa (unless they're married to a Brit, who are heavily scrutinised by immigration on arrival as potential over-stayers if they don't have a Spouse visa.

Not sure there’s a single correct fact in that entire post, Dave. Want to give it another go?
