HC Deb 04 May 2000 vol 349 c214W
Mr. Coaker

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what are the results of the review by the Inland Revenue of the income drawdown arrangements for annuities; and if he will make a statement. [120201]

Miss Melanie Johnson

These changes reflect representations made during the recent Inland Revenue review and will be implemented in the current Finance Bill along with amendments to secondary legislation.
