Mr. Alan Clark

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer by what statutory authority or exemption members of the European Assembly are being allowed to pass through Her Majesty's Customs without examination or impediment.

There is no statutory exemption from Customs control for members of the European Parliament. They are not exempt from baggage in section.
