HC Deb 08 February 1954 vol 523 c86W
15. Commander Maitland

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power what arrangements are proposed by the Government to enable nationalised industries, such as the gas industry, to create benevolent funds from which pensions maybe paid to employees who have been in the gas industry for long periods of time, who are now retiring and to whom existing pension schemes are not applicable.

Mr. Geoffrey Lloyd

I am in consultation with the Gas Council about the setting up of benevolent funds by area gas boards.
