HC Deb 15 December 1958 vol 597 cc160-1W
111. Mr. Mason

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is aware of the increasing American efforts to increase their export of atomic power stations to Europe; and to what extent Her Majesty's Government is assisting the British atomic power companies in their endeavours to compete fairly with the Americans in this field.

Mr. Vaughan-Morgan

Yes. Departments and the Atomic Energy Authority keep in close touch with manufacturers of nuclear equipment and, as I said on 29th April in Answer to the hon. Member for Stockton-on-Tees (Mr. Chetwynd), we give all the help and support that we can to this industry, both through our representatives abroad and the insurance of credit risks, in developing export trade.
