HC Deb 12 June 1975 vol 893 cc236-7W
27. Mr. Newens

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what further consideration has been given to the problem of rescheduling the Chilean international debt; and if he will make a statement on the present situation.

Mr. Dell

There have been no developments in Chile's policy on human rights to lead us to reconsider the decision announced in February that the United Kingdom would not be discussing the rescheduling of Chile's debts due for payment in 1975. We therefore did not attend a meeting of Chile's creditors held in Paris last month. The outcome of that meeting was, I understand, that most major creditors represented expressed their intention to negotiate rescheduling although a number of others said they would not do so.
