HC Deb 30 March 1949 vol 463 cc111-2W
71. Sir W. Smithers

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he will take steps to reduce the privileges and activities of foreign embassies in Britain to the same level as those enjoyed by British embassies in respective foreign countries.

Mr. Mayhew

His Majesty's Government have this matter under consideration. A number of legal and other difficulties arise and I am not in a position to make a more explicit statement at present.
