HC Deb 28 July 1938 vol 338 cc3318-9W
Mr. Sutcliffe

asked the Secretary to the Overseas Trade Department whether he will state the industries which, within the last 18 months, have been assisted by export credits and the extent to which such assistance has been given in each case?

Mr. R. S. Hudson

Guarantees have been given by the Export Credits Guarantee Department for the benefit of United Kingdom exporters in connection with a very large number of different industries during the past 18 months. It is not the practice, however, to state the amount of the Department's commitments in respect of any particular trade or industry.
