§ 67. Mr. W. THORNE
asked what is the amount of British capital invested over seas; and how much is invested in the British Empire?
§ Mr. McKENNA
No official information is available on this question. It has been estimated by good authorities that the total British capital invested abroad amounts to £4,000,000,000, of which nearly one-half has been supplied to the British Empire.
§ Mr. THORNE
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that something like £200,000,000 is realised every year, and: will he keep his eye on that when he makes his next Budget?
