HC Deb 21 November 1983 vol 49 c48W
Mr. Austin Mitchell

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what assessment Her Majesty's Government made of the effect on the share price of their recent sale of BP shares.

Mr. Moore

Since the share sale, the ratio of BP's share price to the FT/Actuaries index for the oils sector does not show any significant change from the ratio in the months before the announcement of the sale in July.
