§ 44. Mr. Higgins
asked the Minister for Trade if he will take steps to ensure that export credits provided to finance exports to the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics for construction of any gas pipelines are not on more favourable terms, particularly with regard to rates of interest, than those available to those wishing to invest in industry in the United Kingdom.
§ Mr. Peter Rees
The terms on which official support by the United Kingdom is given for export credit finance to developed countries, including the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, are the subject of the Consensus agreement between countries of the OECD, and is not direcly related to the terms available to those wishing to invest in industry in the United Kingdom.
