§ Lord Laird
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether any civil servants of the Irish Republic who work mainly or wholly in Northern Ireland have diplomatic immunity; if so, why; and where they are based. [HL1165]
§ Baroness Amos
Officials of the Government of Ireland accredited to Irish diplomatic and consular missions in London, Edinburgh and Cardiff enjoy diplomatic and consular privileges and immunities throughout the United Kingdom. Those based primarily in Northern Ireland have not sought such accreditation.
