§ 20. Mr. Sydney Chapman
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will make a statement on steps to reduce the number of cancellations of fixed penalty notices for parking offences on grounds of diplomatic immunity, particularly with regard to citizens of Cuba, Cyprus, Egypt, Ghana, Iran, Nigeria, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Hungary and Greece, following information given in reply to a Parliamentary Question on 18th July 1973.
§ Mr. Carlisle
What needs to be reduced is not the cancellations but the number of notices incurred. I am in touch with my right hon. Friend the Foreign and Commonwealth Secretary on this matter and on the related question of the adequacy of parking facilities afforded to members of diplomatic missions.
