§ 54. Mr. GRUNDY
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer the amount of British capital invested abroad in the 12 months ending 31st March, 1925; and the amount invested in the Dominions and various foreign States, separately'?
No official statistics on this subject are available. The hon. Member is no doubt aware of the calculations of capital issue in London for overseas published in the Press (particularly in the "Statist" and the "Economist "), which put the total at approximately £110 millions.
I am not responsible for the figures, and I must refer my hon. hon. Friend to the publications.
