HC Deb 21 March 1945 vol 409 c787
8. Sir Malcolm Robertson

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the British political agent at Bucharest has diplomatic status; and, if so, what is that status; and whether his official residence is regarded by the Rumanian Government as ex-territorial carrying with it the right of asylum.

Mr. Law

His Majesty's Government are not in diplomatic relations with the Rumanian Government, since our relations with Rumania are governed by a military armistice. The British Political Representative does not, therefore, possess diplomatic status, but he enjoys all the usual diplomatic privileges and immunities. His official residence is certainly extra-territorial.
