HC Deb 09 May 1961 vol 640 c36W
Mr. Delargy

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department why it is still necessary to have a Metropolitan Police guard at the Belgian Embassy.

Mr. R. A. Butler

Because the Commissioner of Police, on whom the responsibility rests for deciding the degree of protection to be afforded to a particular Embassy at a particular time, considers that these precautions are appropriate in present circumstances.
