MADRID, Nov. 13 (Reuters) — The pólice searched throughout Spain today for a kidnapped member oí Parliament after the Government ruled out any talks wíth his Basque guerrilla captors.

The political wíng of the separatist organízation E.T.A. said it had kidnapped Javier Rupérez over the weekend to gain amnesty for jailed Basque activists.

The guerrillas said they would soon present their demands for the reléase of Mr. Rupérez, 38 years old, who is the international relations spokesman for the ruling Union of the Democratic Center.

The Government called the kidnapping "blackmail" and demanded his immediate reléase.
