§ Mr. Garel-Jones
asked the Lord Privy Seal why the United Kingdom voted in the European Economic Community for an initiative by the Federal Republic of Germany to normalise administrative relations with the de facto military Government of Bolivia.
§ Mr. Ridley
No vote has been taken within the European Community on the subject of relations with Bolivia, although the subject has been discussed in the framework of European political co-operation. We are continuing to restrict formal dealings with the Bolivian Government.
