HC Deb 26 January 1999 vol 324 cc177-8W
Mr. Lock

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he will list in respect of foreign(a) companies and (b) Governments which have been given guarantees in relation to defence and security equipment in the past three years (i) the name of the country to which defence and security equipment has been sold, (ii) the level of debt guaranteed for sales to each country in each of the last three years and (iii) the amount of that debt which was paid out by the ECGD in each of the last three years.

Mr. Wilson

[pursuant to his reply, 25 January 1999, c. 28–29]: Unfortunately one of the figures given for Oman was wrongly transcribed, instead of an amount guaranteed of £908 million, the figure should read £0.9 million:

£ million
Year Country Amount guaranteed Amount paid as claims under these guarantees 1996–97 to 1998–99
1997–98 Oman 0.9 0
