HC Deb 12 October 1976 vol 917 cc97-8W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will give the amount of tax reliefs claimed for the 500,000 children overseas for which such claims have been made; and, as there are an estimated one and a half million wives and other dependants for whom claims have been made and allowed, if he will take steps to collate

the borrowings incurred in currencies other than pounds sterling by whatever method raised by each individual local authority and nationalised industry for the current calendar year and for 1974 and 1975.

Mr. Denzil Davies

I assume that the hon. Member refers to overseas loans raised by the nationalised industries and local authorities for domestic purposes. Lists of outstanding loans to, amongst others, nationalised industries and local authorities until the end of May 1976 were placed in the Library of the House of Commons on 14th October 1975, 19th March 1976 and 10th June 1976. I will now arrange for a further list covering the period from June 1976 to end-September 1976 to be deposited there.
