Finance Bill — Clause 6 — Pension Annuities — Treatment of persons at age 75 — 15 Jul 2010 at 17:15

Oliver Letwin MP, West Dorset did not vote.

The majority of MPs voted against requiring the publication of a report on the implications of raising the age of compulsory annuitisation of pensions from 75 to 77 before the provision to make that change would be able to come into force.

The amendment of the Finance Bill which the Majority of MPs voted against was proposed by Angela Eagle and read:

  • page 3, line 12, at end add-
  • '(2) Schedule 3 shall not have effect unless the Chancellor of the Exchequer has laid before the House of Commons a report on the implications of the abolition of compulsory annuitisation of pensions, including-
  • (a) the revenue implications of abolition; and
  • (b) a distributional analysis showing who would benefit from abolition.'.

The proposal was that the new wording be added to Clause 6 of the Finance Bill (Treatment of persons at age 75)
