HC Deb 17 October 1975 vol 897 cc834-5W
Mr. Lawson

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer by what date he intends to remove controls on capital movements to other EEC countries in accordance with the provisions of the Rome Treaty and the terms of the Treaty of Accession; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Dell

As I explained on 30th July—[Vol. 896, c. 524.]—the retention of existing exchange control restrictions on capital movements has been authorised in view of our balance of payment difficulties. No date has been decided for the removal of these restrictions.
