As National Statistician, I have been asked to reply to your recent question asking for the (a) inflow and (b) outflow of foreign capital into the UK in each month since January 2004.(241564)
The Office for National Statistics does not collect data for total inflows and total outflows of foreign capital into the UK. Data is compiled for net inflows only, that is total inflows of foreign capital less total outflows of foreign capital. This data is not available on a monthly basis but. is compiled on a quarterly basis. Therefore data for net inflows of foreign capital into the UK are attached for every quarter since the first quarter of 2004.
This data is published in the quarterly Balance of Payments First Release.
