§ Mr. Goggins
To ask the President of the Board of Trade if she will list the export credit guarantees given by the British Government to private companies in order to promote exports to Zaire since 1967. 
§ Mr. Ian McCartney
[holding answer 11 June 1997]: Apart from a specific project during the 1980's with an insured value of £29.7 million, cover has not been available from ECGD for exports to Zaire since early 1975.
However, between 1967–75 and the specific project in the 1980's, the number of different companies involved means that it is not practicable or cost-effective to provide detailed information by company.
