star this property answer text <p>Treasury Ministers and officials have meetings with a wide variety of organisations in the public and private sectors, including banks and other financial institutions, as part of the process of policy development and delivery. Details of ministerial and permanent secretary meetings with external organisations on departmental business are published on a quarterly basis and are available at: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/hmt-ministers-meetings-hospitality-gifts-and-overseas-travel" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/hmt-ministers-meetings-hospitality-gifts-and-overseas-travel</a>.</p>Interest rates on savings accounts are set by the institution providing the account. As this is a commercial decision, the Government does not seek to intervene. If a customer is not content with the interest rate they receive, Government encourages them to shop around to find the best savings account for their needs.<p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Pensions tax relief is one of the most expensive reliefs in the personal tax system. In 2017/18 income tax and employer National Insurance Contributions relief cost over £50 billion, with around two-thirds going to higher and additional rate taxpayers. As confirmed at Autumn Budget 2017, from April 2018 the lifetime allowance will increase in line with CPI, in order that the value of this benefit is able to keep pace with inflation. This means from April 2019 the lifetime allowance has risen to £1,055,000.</p><p> </p><p>The same tax rules must apply identically to everyone in the same situation, regardless of their employer.</p><p> </p><p>However, across all public service workforces the Government looks at remuneration in the round and takes action when required to ensure delivery of world class public services. Where there is evidence that the delivery of services is being impacted, the Government takes appropriate action to address this, in line with our principles for pay and pensions policy. This is why we have introduced a temporary, taxable, Recruitment and Retention allowance for a small section of the judiciary, and will shortly bring forward a consultation on a new 50:50 pensions flexibility for senior clinicians in the NHS pension scheme.</p><p> </p><p>All aspects of the tax system are kept under review and are subject to change through the annual Budget, in the context of the wider public finances. Any future changes to the tax system will be announced through this process.</p><p> </p>
