asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what were the respective sums contributed by the United Kingdom and the United States of America to the Joint Export-Import Agency; and what is the value of the fund today.

The sums contributed by the United Kingdom and United States Governments to the Joint Export-Import Agency amount to approximately £15½ million each. Until a balance sheet is available I regret that I am unable to state the present financial position of the Agency.

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs how many Germans are employed by the Joint Export-Import Agency in responsible posts, including executive and administrative grades; and what proportion of the total number of persons in such posts this constitutes.

Sixty-seven Germans are employed by the Joint Export-Import Agency in responsible posts. These are all in grades equivalent to the Executive class in the British Civil Service. This constitutes a little under 24 per cent. of the total number of personnel employed by the Joint Export-Import Agency in such posts.
