HC Deb 20 May 1960 vol 623 cc151-2W
Mr. Biggs-Davison

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer how much United Kingdom capital has been invested in the United States of America during the last year; and in what form.

Mr. Barber

As I stated on 5th April in reply to my hon. Friend the Member for Stroud (Mr. Kershaw), United Kingdom net private long-term investment in the United States in 1959 is, according to information at present available, estimated at £10 million. Most of this was direct investment by United Kingdom companies.
