§ 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.
