Written answers (Question to Defence)

Citizenship of Defence Forces personnel is not recorded in a way that is readily accessed through the Personnel Management System. The collation of this data would require respective Formation Headquarters to conduct a manual review of all personnel files within their control and accordingly, such a voluminous task is not feasible.
