§ Mr. Arthur Lewis
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will give for the longest and most convenient stated period of time a detailed list showing the number of applications which he has received for permission for capital transfer in each of the countries of the Six, for all purposes, and specifically for purchasing houses and villas in particular; what amount of money in total was requested by such applicants; how many were granted; and what were the total sums involved.
§ Mr. Higgins
It is not usual to give details of the number of applications where this might make it possible to identify individual transactions. Following are details of transfers relating to total purchases and sales of properties for private use for the last two calendar years. Information about applications for all other purposes is not available.
