HC Deb 16 October 2003 vol 411 c316W
Mr. Viggers

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what amount in taxation he has levied from pension funds in the last five years. [132077]

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.
