On the contrary, I would suggest that the figures of exports in the first three months of this year give tangible evidence of an improvement consequent upon the Government's measures.
Would the hon. Gentleman have words with his right hon. Friend in order to encourage exports and to ensure that this new step of the Government today of a very severe further credit squeeze is not applied by the banks to companies which are dealing to a very large extent with exports and export orders?
My hon. Friend will be aware that my right hon. Friend included in his last statement on 8th April a number of measures for improving credit facilities. These continue to remain under review.
