§ Mr. Litherland
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what recent steps he has taken to seek to ensure an end to human rights violations in Chile.
§ Mr. Eggar
On 6 December we voted in favour of a United Nations General Assembly resolution calling upon the Chilean authorities to end human rights violations and supporting the special rapporteur's mandate to visit Chile. We shall continue to encourage the Chilean Government towards restraint, and dialogue with the democratic opposition.
