§ Mr. D. G. SOMERVILLE
asked the Secretary to the Overseas Trade Department whether he proposes to issue monthly statements as to the amounts guaranteed under the export credit system, so that the taxpayers may know the extent of the liability to which they are committed and may be able to check the measure of repayment?
§ Mr. GILLETT
The statutory return published quarterly in the "Board of Trade Journal" gives particulars of the amounts guaranteed under the Export Credits Guarantee Scheme, and it has been decided to publish annual commercial accounts of the operations under the scheme. I do not think that any useful purpose would be served by the issue of a monthly statement.
