§ Mr. Beaney
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is aware that the total for British quoted ordinary shares in Table 143 of the 106th Report of the Commissioners of Her Majesty's Inland Revenue 1960–62 is considerably less than the total officially given by the Stock Exchange; and on what basis the figures in that table were compiled.
§ Mr. Maurice Macmillan
Yes. The total in Table 143 relates to shares held by individuals resident in the United Kingdom, and does not include shares held by companies and other institutions in the United Kingdom or by nonresidents. An outline of the basis of the estimates is given on pages 176–178 of the Report.
