§ 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.
