HC Deb 18 April 1946 vol 421 c485W
60. Mr. W. J. Brown

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is willing to alter the terms of the agreement between the Civil Service unions and the Government providing for the reference to arbitration, in default of agreement of issues concerning conditions of service, in such a way as to provide 'hat disputes on superannuation issues at present excluded from the scope of arbitration should be referable to arbitration.

Mr. Dalton:

No, Sir. Superannuation questions, unlike those at present covered by the agreement, are governed by Statute and are not therefore appropriate for arbitration.
