HC Deb 02 November 1989 vol 159 c283W
Mr. Batiste

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what proportion of United Kingdom quoted equities are held by(a) pension funds, (b) unit trusts and (c) investment trusts.

Mr. Lilley

Reliable up-to-date figures are not available, but I understand that the stock exchange will shortly be publishing a survey giving the proportion of equities held by different types of investor. I will write to my hon. Friend and arrange for a copy to be placed in the Library in due course.
