HC Deb 01 July 1920 vol 131 c685W

asked the Minister of Transport whether he will bring to the notice of the railway companies the Resolution unanimously passed by this House on 2nd March, in reference to the pensions of superannuated railwaymen, and impress upon them the necessity of taking immediate steps to carry such Resolution into effect?


The position of the Government was stated clearly in the course of the Debate, and I have publicly intimated, on more than one occasion, that I hope that the railway companies will give the matter consideration. I am sure that they appreciate the circumstances of their superannuated staff, but I will take steps to bring to their notice the terms of the hon. and gallant Member's question and this reply.
