asked the Secretary of State for Trade what has been the surplus of the Export Credit Guarantees Department in the past five years; and if he has any plans to transfer any of its functions to the private sector.
In the past five financial years the net additions to ECGD's section 1—commercial account—and, section 2—national interest account—reserves have been as follows:
|Section 1||£ million|
|Section 2||£ million|
I am not aware of any other infraction proceedings as regards trade in textiles and clothing products.
