United Kingdom national

United Kingdom national (less formally, British national) is a term used differently in various United Kingdom Acts of Parliament. Most commonly, it refers to the following classes of persons:

In some other Acts, e.g. the Atomic Energy Act 1989, the term "United Kingdom national" does not include British subjects and British protected persons.

Except for British Protected Persons, all the above are also Commonwealth citizens. British Protected Persons, like Irish citizens, are in a unique category in that they are neither Commonwealth citizens (British subjects in the pre-1981 definition) nor aliens.
