HC Deb 11 March 1975 vol 888 c114W
Mr. Newens

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if it is his policy to regard as admissible and compatible with diplomatic privileges all intelligence-gathering operations by members of the American Central Intelligence Agency active in the United Kingdom which do not involve any infringement of the law.

Mr. Hattersley:

We would naturally consider taking appropriate action against any diplomatic mission if there were evidence of inadmissible activities incompatible with the functions of a diplomatic mission.
