HC Deb 03 November 1980 vol 991 cc435-6W
Mr. Hooley

asked the Lord Privy Seal if he will hold discussions with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees about the plight of refugees from El Salvador.

Mr. Ridley

We are in touch with the High Commissioner about the 2,000 or so Salvadorean refugees in Belize. He is establishing an emergency assistance programme for them amounting to $56,000 and is also making money available for Salvadorean refugees in other neighbouring countries such as Honduras.
