HC Deb 17 December 1998 vol 322 cc709-10W
Ms Drown

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry how many civil servants are employed in his Department to assist in supporting and promoting defence exports; and at what cost. [64462]

Mr. Battle

None of my officials are employed full-time in defence export promotion. However, a part of the workload of several DTI officials is on such activity, where they work alongside the Defence Exports Services Organisation of the MOD.
