L&G provide late ISA application service

Legal & General put arrangements in place to accept applications for the 2003/ 2004 tax year up until midnight on 5 April to help investors who leave making their ISA investment to the last minute.

Customers are able to use L&G&#39s telephone dealing service on Freephone 0800 092 0092, which on Monday 5 April will be open until midnight to take applications and payment by debit card.
