The free movement of capital was not a requirement when the UK joined the Common Market. Mrs Thatcher removed exchange controls, which no doubt could be reintroduced at anytime.
I should tell you about the time I tried to leave Britain via Eurostar with 600,000 Belgian Francs in the early nineties. All of my mates still laugh at the two days I had to spend in custody.
