Mr. McCartney: Pursuant to my written answer on 16 April 2002, Official Report, column 892W.
The information is in the table.
The number of people who have a personal pension

Numbers receiving income from a personal pension
Total number of people with a personal pension
1. Information is drawn from the Family Resources Survey (FRS) for the year 2000?01 and covers Great Britain only.
