HC Deb 01 February 1982 vol 17 c14W
50. Mr. Newens

asked the Lord Privy Seal if he will take steps to ensure that British exporters to developing countries are not placed at a disadvantage compared to foreign competitors whose home Governments offer more generous terms for the provision of aid in cases in which their nationals are awarded contracts.

Mr. Neil Marten

We have had some major successes in aid-supported business recently; and have expanded the provision established by our predecessors for matching mixed credits offered by our competitors.
