Al-Jedda v Secretary of State for the Home Department: [2013] UKSC 62;   [2013] WLR (D)  371

“In considering whether an order depriving a person of British citizenship would make him stateless, as required by s 40(4) of the British Nationality Act 1981, as amended, the Home Secretary, and on appeal the court, had simply to identify whether the person held another nationality at the date the order was made. The section did not permit, or require, the Home Secretary to assert that the person’s failure to apply for restoration of another nationality which he would be bound to obtain, rather than the making of the deprivation order itself, made him stateless.”
