    Change in ISA allowances

    • Radical reform of pensions, effectively introducing flexible drawdown for all defined contribution schemes, and a major relaxation to the rules for turning small pension pots into cash lump sums.

    • Reform of ISAs, with a new £15,000 annual contribution limit and full transferability in both directions between stocks and shares and cash.
