§ Mr. Robert McCartney
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs which Irish participants(a) from the Anglo-Irish secretariat at Maryfield and (b) involved in the talks at Castle buildings have been granted diplomatic status; and what level of immunity from arrest and criminal charges this gives. 
§ Sir Nicholas Bonsor
None in either category. The officials in question have not therefore acquired any level of immunity from arrest and criminal charges as a result of diplomatic status.
