§ Mr. Savidge
To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if ECGD support has been(a) discussed, (b) requested and (c) granted for any projects of the South East Anatolia Development Project in Turkey other than the Ilisu Dam. 343W
§ Mr. Caborn
ECGD support has not been granted for any project in the South East Anatolia Development Project, including Ilisu.
There are no current applications for projects in the South East Anatolia Development Project other than Ilisu and the wastewater treatment plant at Diyarbakir.
An informal preliminary inquiry was received in 1999 regarding a possible application for a subcontract on the Cizre project; no application has been received.
Because applications/records of discussions which do not result in a guarantee are kept for only a limited time after the exporter has advised that they may be closed, it is not possible to state definitively that no discussions were held, or requests for cover received, in the early years of the South East Anatolia Development Project.
