§ Mr. Corbyn
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what action Her Majesty's Government have taken in respect of human rights violations in El Salvador; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Eggar
We have repeatedly made clear to the Salvadorean Government our concern over human rights violations. Most recently my right hon. and learned Friend raised the matter with the Salvadorean Foreign Minister in November 1985. But, we and many other countries recognise the improvements that have taken place under President Duarte. We are also concerned about increasing human rights violations committed by the guerrilla forces active in El Salvador.
