§ 61. Mr. Chetwynd
asked the President of the Board of Trade what contracts for nuclear power stations in Euratom countries have been awarded to British firms; and what Governmental machinery exists to assist British firms in this field of exports.
§ Mr. Vaughan-Morgan
No contract has yet been awarded to any firm, British or other, but a British firm has secured a letter of intent from an Italian concern. Negotiations now going on in other Euratom countries may also lead to contracts in due course.
All Governmental facilities, such as commercial intelligence, help by Her Majesty's representatives overseas and credit insurance are available to this as to other industries, and full advantage is being taken of them.
