HC Deb 07 December 1983 vol 50 cc177-8W
Mr. Parry

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if, in view of the deteriorating situation of human rights in El Salvador and the resolution of the European Parliament on 17 November, Her Majesty's Government will vote in favour of the resolution at the United Nations General Assembly against human rights violations in El Salvador; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Whitney

Our voting intentions depend on the final text of the resolution, which is liable to change at the last minute. However, we have frequently made clear, at the United Nations and elsewhere, our condemnation of human rights abuses in El Salvador by whomsoever committed.
