HC Deb 31 March 1908 vol 187 c317
MR. HUDSON (Newcastle on Tyne)

I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade if he can say whether an inquiry into the question of railway superannuation and pension funds will be held; and, if so, when the Committee will be appointed and what form the inquiry will take?


I have arranged to appoint a Departmental Committee to inquire into the constitution, rules, administration, and financial position of the Superannuation and similar Funds of Railway Companies. The composition of the Committee will be announced shortly.


Will the terms of reference cover other traction companies, such as tramways?


No. I cannot say that I contemplate including tramways.
