HC Deb 24 May 1968 vol 765 c152W
Mr. Bruce-Gardyne

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will give details of any statutory controls upon, or deterrent to, investment by United Kingdom residents in companies registered in the Republic of Ireland which are not subject to his proposed controls on increases in dividend distributions.

Mr. Diamond

No statutory controls apply, but portfolio investment by United Kingdom institutional investors and direct investment in the Republic of Ireland is subject to the Voluntary Programme introduced in May, 1966.
