HC Deb 14 June 1988 vol 135 cc155-6W
45. Mr. Hind

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Services what has been the response to date to the availability of portable personal pensions.

Mr. Portillo

Although the new personal pension arrangements under the Social Security Act 1986 do not start until 1 July, I am aware that there is already substantial interest in this important new option in saving for retirement.
