Section 6: Diplomatic service code
88.Section 6 makes provision for a code of conduct for the diplomatic service which will be along the lines of the existing code for the diplomatic service, the Diplomatic Service Code of Ethics. The code reflects the core principles of the civil service code of conduct. This code must be laid before Parliament, but there is no Parliamentary procedure. Under subsection (4) the code forms part of the terms and conditions for civil servants in the diplomatic service.
