§ Mr. Viggers
To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what amount in taxation he has levied from pension funds in the last five years. 
§ Ruth Kelly
Approved pension funds do not normally pay tax on their investments. The only exceptions are where a pension fund is involved in an activity outside the terms of its tax approval or makes a taxable payment to a scheme employer or member. The amount of tax paid by pension funds under these circumstances in the last five years is not held centrally.
