HC Deb 09 February 1979 vol 962 c303W
Mr. Ridsdale

asked the Secretary of State for Trade how much he estimates will be the cost to the Exchequer in the case of export credit guarantees as far as loss of payments by Iran are concerned; and what is the present total of these particular credits.

Mr. Meacher

Figures of ECGD business for individual markets are not normally published for reasons of commercial confidence. In any case, it is much too early to make any useful estimate of the impact of the current situation in Iran.
