§ Dr. Cable:
To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry pursuant to her Answer of 20 June 2003, Official Report, column 493W, on ECGD, if she will list the exposure under each reinsurance contract; what the split of business reinsured between defence and non-defence is; which claims have been (a) notified but not yet agreed and (b) agreed but not paid; and what projections have been made of expected claims payments. 
§ Mr. Mike O'Brien:
Since the start of 1997, ECGD has reinsured 22 deals with other Export Credit Agencies (EGAs) in respect of medium/long-term business. ECGD has received no claims and therefore paid no claims. ECGD does not currently anticipate receiving any claims in respect of any of these cases. Current Exposure refers to the amount that ECGD has reinsured which is still outstanding.145W

§ Mr. Mike O'Brien:
Prior to the end of 1997, ECGD provided reinsurance to other Export Credit Agencies (EGAs) under Co-operation Agreements on only two occasions in respect of medium/long-term business. The cover provided was reinsurance of all risks covered by the lead EGA.147W
Current Exposure refers to the amount that ECGD has reinsured which is still outstanding.
These cases are also referred to in PQ No. 130246 answered today and were the first cases under the first Co-operation Agreement (with France) that was signed in 1995.

However, it would incur disproportionate cost to list and detail every occasion that ECGD has provided short-term reinsurance prior to 1997 due to the very large numbers involved. When its short-term business was privatised in 1991, ECGD provided reinsurance on all exposure transferred to the commercial insurer (NCM Credit Insurance Ltd.)
