To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, pursuant to his answer of 25 April to the hon. Member for Oxford, East,Official Report, column 463, if he will now make urgent representations to the E1 Salvadorean Government concerning the case of Senor Cordova Aguilar.

Mr. Eggar

We have on numerous occasions made very clear to the E1 Salvadorean authorities the importance that we attach to proper respect for human rights.

We are conveying to the authorities the concern which is felt over the case of Senor Cordova Aguilar's disappearance. We have also been in touch with Tutela Legal, the human rights office of the Catholic Church in El Salvador, who have informed us that there are no clues as to who was responsible for Senor Cordova Aguilar's disappearance in July last year.
