Mr. Denham

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what has been the cost to date of tax relief allowed in respect of appropriate personal pensions contracted out of the state earnings-related pension scheme of individuals with annual earnings of(a) £2,000 or below, (b) up to £3,000, (c) up to £4,000, (d) up to £5,000, (e) up to £6,000, (f) up to £7,000, (g) up to £8,000, (h) up to £9,000 and (i) up to £10,000.

Mr. Jack

[holding answer 9 January 1996]: I regret that the distribution of tax relief by earnings of participants is not available, but the total cost of tax relief for personal pensions is published annually in table 1.6 of "Inland Revenue Statistics".
