§ 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.
