HC Deb 28 March 1950 vol 473 c24W
69. Sir W. Smithers

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will give details of the restrictions placed on the banking accounts of foreign diplomats in Britain.

Sir S. Cripps

Career diplomats and established members of foreign embassies, legations and consulates in the United Kingdom are regarded for exchange control purposes as residents of the country which they represent. Their accounts are subject to the same restrictions as are applied to those of other persons whose permanent place of residence is outside the sterling area.
