Q24.

asked the Prime Minister to what extent it is the policy of Her Majesty's Government to continue to make financial contributions and interest-free loans to countries which sever diplomatic relations with this country; and what effect this will have on trade relations.

This will depend on the circumstances in which diplomatic relations are severed. Severance in itself has no direct effect on trade relations, or on aid programmes.
