HC Deb 29 March 1956 vol 550 c250W
Major Beamish

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power on what date he received from the Gas Council suggestions for improving the pensions of ex-gas company pensioners; in what terms he has replied; and whether he is now in a position to make a hill statement.

Mr. Aubrey Jones

On the 16th March, the Gas Council submitted for my approval a scheme for increasing the pensions of its ex-gas company and other pensioners who have received no increases under the Pensions (Increase) Acts, 1944 to 1952.

I have given my approval to this scheme.
