Mr. Allen

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will list the publicly available sources of information on the exchange equalisation account.

Mr. Lilley

The exchange equalisation account holds the United Kingdom's official reserves, figures for which are published in table 17.1 of the Bank of EnglandQuarterly Bulletin and in table 10.3 of Financial Statistics. Information on reserves changes is also published each month by the Treasury as part of the reserves press notice. Historical material relating to the exchange equalisation account is released in accordance with the Public Records Acts 1958 and 1967.
