§ Mr. Norman Atkinson
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will set out in tabular form by category of owner total investment in British companies expressed as a level of tangible assets plus gross financial assets at market value; and what percentage each category of owner is credited, breaking down, if possible, the category listed as nominees.
§ Mr. Moore
[pursuant to his reply, 8 February 1984, c. 602]: The available figures are for ordinary shares in United Kingdom companies listed on the stock exchange. The latest figures for beneficial share ownership, which are for end-1981, with those for end-1975, are published in "The Stock Exchange Survey of Share Ownership", page 6, table 2.1b. The breakdown of the nominee 747W category at end-1981 is given on page 15 of the survey report in table 4.1. A copy of the survey is available in the House of Commons Library.
