HC Deb 06 March 1939 vol 344 c1759W
Mr. R. Morgan

asked the Secretary to the Overseas Trade Department whether he will now state the export credits which it is proposed to grant to the Chinese Government out of the extra sum approved by Parliament; and whether these grants give effect to the requests of the Chinese Government?

Mr. Cross

I have been asked to reply. As my right hon. Friend has explained more than once guarantees under the Export Guarantees Act are given not to foreign Governments but to or for the benefit of United Kingdom exporters. Transactions relating to exports to China are under consideration but I am afraid no particulars can be given.
