Mr. John Marshall

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment what would be the loss of revenue if all contributions to the safety net were limited to(a) £40 and (b) £20.

Mr. Chope

Limiting the contributions to the safety net shown in the provisional figures which were placed in the Library on 6 November to £40 per adult would reduce contributions by £125 million. If contributions were limited to £20 per adult the reduction in contributions would be £316 million.
