Lord Bruce of Donington

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they will state in respect of each overseas country concerned the United Kingdom's holding of assets within that country and the revenue derived from them.

Lord Young of Graffham

I regret that the information is not available. Data on direct investment relating to the end of 1984 may be found inBritish Business, 22nd May 1987. The latest issue of the Bank of England Quarterly Bulletin contains information on UK banks' assets overseas as at the end of June 1987.
