HC Deb 03 December 1980 vol 995 c127W
Mr. Ceraint Howells

asked the Lord Privy Seal what representations he has received concerning the case of Claire Wilson; and what action he proposes to take with the Chilean Government.

Mr. Ridley

We have received a number of representations about this distressing case. Despite the limitation on our ability to intervene on behalf of a dual national in the country of her other nationality, we successfully procured her release from prison and have protested to the Chilean Government about the treatment Miss Wilson received during her detention.
