Inward Investment

Volume 700: debated on Wednesday 23 April 2008

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What ethical standards they apply to inward investment; whether such principles take account of living standards and human rights in countries investing in the United Kingdom; and what procedures, if any, exist to monitor where inward investment comes from. [HL2774]

The Government monitor inward investment by country of origin using project and financial data.

The Government's approach to corporate responsibility applies to inward investors as it does to all UK-based companies.
