§ Mr. Peter Bruinvels
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs whether any new guidelines have been issued to ambassadors and high commissioners based in London concerning the use of diplomatic immunity to avoid prosecution for illegal parking; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Renton
I refer my hon. Friend to paragraph 80 of the recent White Paper on "Diplomatic Immunities and Privileges" (Cmnd. 9497). The vice marshal of the diplomatic corps wrote on 19 April to all heads of mission about illegal parking.
