HC Deb 15 May 1947 vol 437 cc178-9W
61. Mr. A. Lewis

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he is aware that former employees of the West Ham Corporation Tramways, compulsorily transferred to the L.P.T.B., have been excluded from participation under the Pensions (Increase) Act; and what action he proposes to take to have these men included under this Act.

Mr. Glenvil Hall

the Pensions (Increase) Act, 1944, does not apply to the persons concerned; and no application has been received from the London Passenger Transport Board for enabling powers under Section 5 of the Pensions (Increase) Act, 1947.
