HC Deb 28 November 1995 vol 267 cc568-9W
19. Mr. Mark Robinson

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what support his Department provides to assist companies wishing to export military helicopters. [830]

Mr. Arbuthnot

Within the Ministry of Defence, support for defence exports is provided, primarily, by the Defence Export Services Organisation, which exists to help British manufacturers market and sell their products abroad, complementing the wider range of services offered by the Department of Trade and Industry. In addition to the DESO/DTI support, the Export Credits Guarantee Department makes available its range of export credit facilities to support defence sales.
