HC Deb 11 May 1978 vol 949 cc584-5W
Mr. Roper

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will raise the maximum number of index-linked National Savings bonds which can be held by retirement pensioners to take into account the increase in the retail price index which has occurred since they were first introduced.

Mr. Denzil Davies

There is no intention to do so at present, but the terms of national savings instruments are subject to regular review. Index-linked Save-As-You-Earn is open to pensioners in addition to the index-linked retirement issue of national savings certificates.
