Dr. Tonge

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry, pursuant to his answer of 29 November 1999,Official Report, column 23W, on the Ilisu dam, when he will make a decision on the application for export credit support; and if he will make a statement. [103234]

Mr. Caborn

The application for ECGD support for the UK participation in the Ilisu Dam project has given rise to a number of social, political, environmental and cultural issues requiring further consideration between ECGD, the other export credit agencies involved, the Turkish authorities and the contractors. A decision on the application will not be taken until the issues have been satisfactorily resolved.
