Mr. Higgs

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will state the income from dividends and interest on overseas investments for the years 1929, 1934 and 1938?

Mr. Stanley

As estimated by Sir Robert Kindersley, the receipts by United Kingdom residents from investments outside the British Isles amounted in 1929 to £231,000,000, and in 1934 to £159,000,000. The corresponding figure for 1938 is not yet available, but that for 1937 is £198,000,000.
