HC Deb 17 June 2002 vol 387 c127W
Mr. Cousins

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how much UK overseas investment was in each year since 1996 broken down by each main region of destination. [61861]

Ruth Kelly

The information requested falls within the responsibility of the National Statistician. I have asked him to reply.

Letter from John Pullinger to Mr. Jim Cousins, dated 17 June 2002: The National Statistician has been asked to reply to your recent question on UK investment abroad since 1996 by region of destination. I am replying in his absence. (61861) The Office for National Statistics (ONS) does not compile a full geographical breakdown of the United Kingdom's financial account (which contains the United Kingdom's investment flows), although some information is available for the direct investment component. A geographical breakdown of UK foreign direct investment abroad is published annually in the Foreign Direct Investment Business Monitor (MA4), copies of which are available in the House of Commons Library.
