HC Deb 07 November 1979 vol 973 c182W
Mr. McCrindle

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer for what reasons of policy pension payments made under a permanent health insurance contract are regarded as investment income, whereas ordinary pension income from an occupational fund is treated as earned income; and if he will seek to amend the law so as to treat the first class of pension payments as earned income.

Mr. Peter Rees

I shall let my hon. Friend have a reply as soon as possible.
