HC Deb 02 November 1995 vol 265 c428W
Mr. Nigel Griffiths

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what is his estimate of the number of millionaires in the United Kingdom. [39100]

Mr. Jack

It is not possible to assess precisely the number of living millionaires in the United Kingdom at any one time. The only available estimates are derived from inheritance tax data on a year-of-death basis. Relevant information for 1991–92 is given at the end of table 13.1 on page 128 of Inland Revenue statistics 1995.
