HC Deb 19 December 1975 vol 902 cc831-2W
Mr. Robert Hughes

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will publish in the Official Report the annual private inflow/outflow of capital from and to Scotland and other parts of the United Kingdom and from and to the rest of the world.

Mr. Dell

Estimates of this kind cannot be compiled since the relevant information is not available. Estimates for external capital flows between the United Kingdom as a whole and the rest of the world are published by the Central Statistical Office in "United Kingdom Balance of Payments 1964–74" and in the March, June, September and December issues of "Economic Trends". Further detail concerning direct investment is contained in the "Business Monitor" series produced by the Department of Industry.
