The figures you mention are not those from the Retail Price Index to which the certificates are linked. National Savings say they bear some similarity to the value of certificate held. But are still not quite correct. VoC figures for February 1994 would be 105.59 for example, compared to your 105.09 figure. cont.. ——————————————————————————————————2/6—— Property Plus 544 Tourist rates 547 Download and Analyse Share Prices on Your PC See Pages 532 & 533 Property Plus Your Money Tax Cinema

In Feb 1994 the value was 105.09 and in March 105.38 - a fall. Yet in June 1990 it was 141.04 and in July 1990 127.52 - a rise of £13.52 surely that's a high rate of inflation J R Millar, Teeside. ——————————————————————————————————1/6—— We cannot reply to letters personally.

However, a spokesman said values will increase across a year, but there can be small monthly dips in value - nothing to affect the savings value overall though. Index-linking means you're protected against the effects of inflation. cont ——————————————————————————————————3/6—— Always seek independent finance advice Letters to: ADVICE CLINIC PO BOX 297 LONDON, SW6 1XT.

Currently on sale is the 8th issue. The 5th issue matures between July 2 and November 12 this year. After maturity they are index-linked only, so if you hold these you need to consider your investment options.
