To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs pursuant to his answer of 3 February 2004,Official Report, column 837W, on bribery, how many reports of concerns of bribery registered by UK companies about foreign competitors have been made by his Department to foreign governments since February 2002.

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office has no record of having received any approaches since February 2002 as a result of concerns registered by UK companies about foreign competitors; and has not therefore had any reports to pass to foreign governments.
