To ask Mr Chancellor of the Exchequer, prior to allocating funding for the new savings bond for senior citizens announced in the Autumn Statement, what assessment he made of likely demand for the new bond.
The Government has allocated £10bn of inflows to the new savings Bonds for the 65 and over. They will pay a market leading rate, and there will be an investment limit of £10,000 per bond per person. That allows for one million bonds.
