§ 70. Mr. Martin
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement on relations with Chile.
§ Mr. Rifkind
We maintain normal diplomatic relations with Chile and continue to express our concern at the need for an early return to political dialogue and democracy. Following the recent earthquake, we have given £80,000 of disaster relief through Caritas, the Chilean Red Cross and Christian Aid and are considering what further measures we might take to help the homeless.
