asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what has been the outcome of the continuing discussions regarding United Kingdom diplomatic representation in Tehran and Iranian representation in London; and why Iran is still permitted to maintain an embassy in London while the United Kingdom is represented through the Royal Swedish embassy in Tehran.
