HC Deb 16 May 1990 vol 172 c448W
38. Mr. Hind

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he has any plans to improve the provision of export credit guarantees for Warsaw pact countries; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Redwood

The provision by ECGD of export credit guarantees—including those for countries in the Warsaw pact—is kept under regular review. Any improvement in the provision of such guarantees is made as and when justified. A review of ECGD's investment insurance cover for eastern European countries was recently undertaken and as a result some wide-ranging extensions to the scheme for those markets were announced.
