HC Deb 08 March 1962 vol 655 c85W
48. Mr. Shinwell

asked the President of the Board of Trade what is the average time taken in reaching a decision on applications within the export guarantee provisions.

Mr. Erroll

In view of the wide range of propositions put to E.C.G.D., no average time can be calculated. Most of the applications are for credit limits on terms up to 6 months, of which the Department receives over 3,000 a week. 75 per cent. of these are answered within 72 hours.

Forward to
