§ 12. Mr. Osborne
asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation if he is yet able to announce his decision on railwaymen's pensions.
§ Mr. Osborne
But may I press my right hon. Friend to make his statement very soon—really soon—because many of the railwaymen have pensions dating to before 1939 and are really having a very hard time in view of the increased cost of living?
§ Mr. Watkinson
I quite agree with my hon. Friend, and I shall try to keep to his requirements of "really soon."
§ Mr. Ernest Davies
Can the Minister say whether he will make this statement before Easter? Can he give an assurance that he will endeavour to do so, because this has been dragging on for months and months?
