HC Deb 21 March 1985 vol 75 c594W
22. Mrs. Roe

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what recent representations he has received regarding the trend in business investment.

Mr. Peter Rees

Surveys by the CBI and the Department of Trade and Industry indicate that 1984's all-time high for business investment of £20.7 billion in current prices is likely to be comfortably exceeded this year.
