HC Deb 06 November 1968 vol 772 c120W
Mr. Dickens

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will estimate the amount of British private portfolio investment made in Australia during the first six months of 1968.

Mr. Harold Lever

The available information is incomplete, but provisional Australian estimates indicate a total inflow of portfolio investment and institutional loans into Australia of rather over £100 million in the first half of 1968. It is thought that by far the greater part of this investment has come from the United Kingdom.
