§ 71. Mr. Biggs-Davison
asked the President of the Board of Trade what is the position regarding long outstanding payments guaranteed by the Exports Credit Guarantee Department for payments due from West African countries; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Darling
I assume that the hon. Member has in mind payments outstanding long after due date. These are reflected in claims. Ghana is the only West African country on which large claims have recently been paid. The total is about al million since 1st April, 1966.
