§ Mr. Latham
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs whether he will make a statement on the help and support being given by Her Majesty's ambassador in Tel Aviv to British firms seeking contracts in Israel for housing Soviet immigrants; and what progress has been made in discussions with the Government of Israel in that regard.
§ Mr. Garel-Jones
Discussions are continuing between the Export Credits Guarantee Department and the Israeli authorities concerning the establishment of a line of credit to finance housing projects to be located in Israel. This will have to be on the condition that none of the funds are to be spent on housing in the occupied territories including east Jerusalem.
