HC Deb 25 February 1991 vol 186 c338W
Mr. French

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer by how much the total level of personal savings has risen since the introduction of TESSAs.

Mr. Maude

TESSAs are proving to be very successful and are undoubtedly helping to encourage a climate of thrift. Any estimate of their effect on the overall level of personal savings would be speculative.
