HC Deb 09 April 1981 vol 2 c312W
Mr. Trotter

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer when the present limit on monthly deposits under the Post Office "Save as You Earn'. scheme was introduced; what would be the equivalent figure at the present time to retain the value in real terms; and whether he will increase the limit.

Mr. Lawson

The current monthly contribution limit of £50 on the Department for National Savings 3rd Issue index-linked "Save as You Earn" scheme came into operation on 1 April 1981. We have no present intention to make a further increase in this limit.
