HC Deb 21 July 1975 vol 896 cc16-7W
Mr. Burden

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will take steps to inform all foreign Governments that any member of the Diplomatic Corps endeavouring to smuggle an animal that is subject to United Kingdom quarantine regulations into Great Britain will render himself persona non grata.

Mr. Ennals

I should naturally view with concern any proven case of an attempt by a member of staff of a diplomatic mission in the United Kingdom to evade our regulations. In advance of any such attempt, however, I cannot say exactly what steps I should take.
