HC Deb 07 December 1983 vol 50 c171W
17. Mr. Bulmer

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if Her Majesty's Government will seek to renegotiate the relevant treaties relating to diplomatic immunity so that all diplomats may no longer avoid prosecution for infringements of motoring legislation, such as illegal parking.

Mr. Whitney

This would represent a significant departure from established international law and practice. There is no realistic prospect of securing general agreement to it.
