HC Deb 22 December 1971 vol 828 c369W
Mr. Bray

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will seek powers to enable him to prevent the transmission of funds from the United Kingdom in cases where he judges them to be for the benefit of revolutionary groups acting against a foreign country with whom Great Britain has friendly relations, or where he judges the interests of Commonwealth countries are being adversely affected by the activities of such groups.

Mr. Higgins

Powers are available in the Exchange Control Act, 1947.

Instructions to banks regarding individual gifts are set out in an Exchange Control Notice, of which I am sending my hon. Friend a copy.
