Cambelt or Camchain?

At what point did the Vauxhall Corsa CDTi engine switch from a cambelt to a cam chain, as some forums say they're chain drive, while I've seen an advert advising that a car has had its cambelt replaced.

I'm going to be doing about 20k miles a year, so how regularly would I need to replace either of them?

The only Cora diesel that is chain cam is the 1.3 that has a FIAT engine.
