§ Mr. Walden
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what further action has been decided upon by Her 96W Majesty's Government in connection with the recent earthquake disaster in Chile.
§ Mr. George Thomson
The Festival Ballet is arriving in Chile early in May under the auspices of the British Council and it has been decided to arrange a charity performance in aid of the Minister of Economy's Relief Fund. Her Majesty's Ambassador will hand to the Chilean Government a cheque to the value of the Council's receipts from this special performance. This is expected to be between £700 and £850.
An advance is being obtained from the Civil Contingencies Fund pending the voting of the appropriate Estimate.
