HC Deb 23 July 1973 vol 860 cc264-5W
41. Mr. Skeet

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what is the total British investment in Zambian copper; and in what other States there is significant British investment in the mining or the production of cuprous ores.

Sir G. Howe

British investment in Zambian copper is in the form of portfolio investment or investment in companies domiciled in third countries which have subsidiaries in Zambia, for which separate figures are not available. Other countries in which there are British interests in copper mining include the United States, Canada, Australia, South Africa, Rhodesia and Zaire.
