asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what capital sum has been invested in Britain since July, 1945, in such direct immediate wealth-producing things as mines, land reclamation, factories, power stations, ports, transport, and in capital investments such as housing, schools, hospitals not immediately directly producing wealth.

Figures for 1947 and 1948 are given in Table 7 of the Economic Survey for 1949 (Cmd. 7647). I regret that comparable figures for 1945 and 1946 are not available.
