HC Deb 17 June 1982 vol 25 c315W
Mr. Ashley

asked the Minister for Trade if he will ensure that the Export Credits Guarantee Department gives prompt and comprehensive assistance to the industries of Stoke-on-Trent in general and the pottery industry in particular; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Peter Rees

[pursuant to his reply, 16 June 1982, c. 273]: The full range of appropriate facilities of the Export Credits Guarantee Department is available to exporters in Stoke-on-Trent in general and in the pottery industry in particular on the same basis as for all United Kingdom exporters. The Department has a large number of policyholders in the Stoke-on-Trent area and deals with business under their policies as promptly as possible.
