HC Deb 17 June 1963 vol 679 c1W
40. Mr. Brewis

asked the Lord Privy Seal whether he will make a statement on the recent visit of the Chilean trade delegation.

Mr. Heath

A Chilean Goodwill Mission led by Senor Julio Philippi, Chilean Minister for Lands and Colonisation, visited this country as guests of Her Majesty's Government from 28th to 29th May. The Mission discussed the Chilean ten-year development plan, Chilean trade with the United Kingdom, and possible uses for the loan of £1½ million announced by my hon. Friend the Economic Secretary to the Treasury on 8th April. We expect that, as a result of these discussions, the Chilean Government will soon be making specific proposals for the use of this money.
