Ribble Valley MP's call for lower bonds
2:05pm Wednesday 31st October 2012 in News
RIBBLE Valley MP Nigel Evans is calling for the minimum purchase for premium bonds to be reduced from £100 to £25 to encourage families to provide a savings platform for their children.
He said the current economic climate meant that young people were finding it difficult to save for the future.
He said: “Premium bonds are a safe and productive way of saving money and they represent a great opportunity for parents and grandparents to put money aside for their children and grandchildren for whom it is incredibly difficult to build savings.”
