Mr. Gordon Prentice

To ask the President of the Board of Trade what assistance he has given to Rolls-Royce to secure contracts for the supply of Rolls-Royce engines for Tupolev aircraft. [19095]

Mr. Eggar

The Export Credits Guarantee Department has invited the Russian Ministry of Finance to nominate Rolls-Royce RB211 aeroengines for the Tupolev 204 as a priority for ECGD cover if it wishes to do so. However, the order or priorities is for the Russian authorities to decide.
