HC Deb 16 November 1971 vol 826 cc98-9W
Mr. Tom McMillan

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what credit facilities are granted to nationalised industries competing for export orders.

Mr. Noble

The provision of export credit facilities to the nationalised industries, as to private industry, is a function of the banking system. The full range of E.C.G.D.'s credit insurance guarantees is available in support of these facilities.
