HC Deb 21 January 1931 vol 247 cc181-2
12. Mr. PALMER (for Mr. TILLETT)

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether any variation exists in the diplomatic immunity and diplomatic privileges accorded to the different foreign nations by this country?


As far as diplomatic immunity is concerned, all foreign diplomatic missions are treated alike. This statement also applies to diplomatic privileges, with the exception of exemption from rates, in regard to which the privileges granted are dependent on reciprocity, and of Customs facilities, the grant of which to members other than heads of missions is also dependent on reciprocity.
