HC Deb 18 December 1989 vol 164 c28W
Mr. Livingstone

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what effect the non-publication of forecasts of overseas sector capital flows has on the process of making projections, in the Autumn Statement or elsewhere, of the future exchange rate.

Mr. Norman Lamont

[holding answer 12 December 1989]: Although forecasts of overseas capital flows are not published, the Treasury does look carefully at the capital account as part of the detailed figuring underlying the published forecast.
