§ Mr. HACKING
asked the Secretary to the Overseas Trade Department whether his Department has given any assistance 624W since June, 1929, to shipbuilders or their agents in this country under the exports credits scheme; and, if so, what countries are concerned and what are the nature of the ships built or about to be built?
§ Mr. GILLETT
Although the Export Credits Guarantee Department have offered guarantees to shipbuilders or their agents in several cases since June, 1929, no contracts have so far been entered into. The second part of the question does not therefore arise.
