HC Deb 30 January 2004 vol 417 c591W
Malcolm Bruce

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry pursuant to the answer of 25 June 2003,Official Report, column 798W, on the Export Credits Guarantee Department, if she will list the contracts for which Nigeria has incurred its total debt to the ECGD, stating the project type and the UK company concerned in each instance. [151539]

Mr. Mike O'Brien

The current outstanding debt on Nigeria is £4.494 billion (this figure includes interest and arrears.) Due to the high number of transactions involved (over 26,000 dating back 20 years or more), it would not be possible to identify all projects individually without incurring disproportionate cost.
