HC Deb 25 July 1986 vol 102 cc684-5W
Mr. Austin Mitchell

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will publish in the Official Report a table showing for each year since 1956 the estimated percentage of equity shareholdings in United Kingdom enterprises held by private individuals; and if he will provide for the latest year a breakdown of the figures showing the percentage held by insurance companies, pension funds, investment trusts and so on, other companies, and the overseas sector.

Mr. Norman Lamont

I regret that it has not been possible to provide an answer before the summer recess. I shall write to the hon. Member and place a copy of the letter in the Library.
