HC Deb 25 July 1986 vol 102 cc674-5W
Sir Brandon Rhys Williams

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will introduce legislation to permit the interest and redemption cost of loan stocks offered on fixed terms, other than the inclusion of an index related to the performance of the company, to rank for tax purposes as the equivalent of debentures.

Mr. Ian Stewart

I regret that it has not been possible to provide an answer before the summer recess. I shall write to my hon. Friend and place a copy of the letter in the Library.
