§ 71. Mr. N. Macpherson
asked the Minister of Fuel and Power whether he will make regulations to provide the same increases in pensions for retired local government officers who were employed in local government electricity undertakings before nationalisation as are provided under the Pensions (Increase) Act, 1952.
§ Mr. Geoffrey Lloyd
The Pensions (Increase) Act, 1952, does not apply to nationalised industries, but I am considering whether I should make Regulations under the Electricity Act, 1947, to give equivalent benefits to ex-municipal pensioners.
