HC Deb 21 June 1995 vol 262 c309W
Mr. Cousins

To ask the President of the Board of Trade whether BMARC received export credits support from the Export Credits Guarantee Department between 1984 and 1990. [29723]

Mr. Ian Taylor


ECGD provided short-term insurance support to BMARC for export transactions to a variety of markets following the issue of a policy to the company in 1990.

In addition, ECGD guaranteed one medium-term transaction for BMARC in May 1988 involving a sale of ammunition valued at just under £1.6 million covered under a line of credit to the Jordan armed forces.
