§ Mr. Norman Lamont
asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what is the total amount of export credits made available to Uganda in the last 10 years; what is the total amount of such debt outstanding to date; and how much of it is due to be repaid in the next three years.
§ Sir G. Howe
No statistics covering total export credits are available. To give figures only for businesses insured with the Export Credits Guarantee Department would risk damaging the commercial interests of British exporters. Details of such guarantees are matters of commercial confidence between the department and exporters concerned.
