§ Mr. Arnold
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs how many members of the Soviet trade delegation are accorded diplomatic privileges and immunities; and whether he has any plans to change the present arrangements.
§ Mr. Rifkind
In accordance with article 5 of the 1934 temporary commercial agreement between the United Kingdom and the Soviet Union, only the Soviet trade representative and his two deputies are accorded diplomatic privileges and immunities. I have no plans at present to change the arrangements set out in the agreement.
