§ Mr. Cockeram
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what estimate he has made of the effect of his Budget on the growth of occupational pension schemes.
§ Mr. Barber
It is of the utmost importance that as many people as possible should be encouraged and helped to save in order to make provision for their old age. The measures I proposed in my Budget for occupational pension schemes were intended to encourage their growth, and I have every confidence that this will follow.
