HC Deb 19 November 1979 vol 974 c16W
Sir Frederic Bennett

asked the Lord Privy Seal if Her Majesty's Government will now indicate their readiness to welcome a Chilean ambassador to London.

Mr. Ridley

There is not yet anything to add to the reply I gave the hon. Member for Bolsover (Mr. Skinner) on 9 November.—[Vol. 973, c.358.]

Miss Joan Lestor

asked the Lord Privy Seal when he expects to reach a decision on whether or not to approve an ambassador to Chile.

Mr. Ridley

We are continuing to examine all aspects of our relations with Chile. I cannot yet say when we shall reach any final decisions.
