HC Deb 30 September 1931 vol 257 cc344-5
36. Mr. GILL

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will give the latest available figures as to the amount of money deposited in this country to the credit of foreigners; the amount of deposits by people of this country in foreign countries; and the value of our foreign investments?


In reply to the first part of the question, I would refer the hon. Member to the reply which my right hon. Friend gave to the hon. Member for Ilkeston (Mr. G. Oliver) on the 22nd September. As regards the second part, there is no official record of such deposits. As regards the third part, while no official figures are available, there are well-known unofficial estimates such as those in the "Economist" of the 22nd August, 1931.
