HC Deb 01 May 1986 vol 96 c451W
Mr. Alan Howarth

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what is his estimate of the number of holders in the United Kingdom of with-profit endowment life assurance policies.

Mr. Howard

It is estimated that at the end of 1984 insurance companies had between 25 million and 30 million with-profit endowment policies in force in the United Kingdom. It is not practicable to estimate the number of individuals holding those policies.
