§ Mr. Letwin
To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security what assessment he has made of the effect of(a) the minimum income guarantee and (b) the pensioners' credit on the likely uptake of stakeholder pensions. 
§ Mr. Rooker
We are consulting on proposals to introduce the Pension Credit from 2003. The Pension Credit will reward savings and therefore have a positive impact on the take up of second pensions, including Stakeholder pension.
