§ 17. Mr. C. Hughes
asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation whether he will make Regulations under Section 98 of the Transport Act, 1947, with a view to increasing the scales of benefits payable by the provident society for providing pensions for the widows and orphans of the salaried staff of the London and North Western Railway.
§ Mr. Watkinson
No. This is a matter for consideration by the Committee of Management and the General Meeting of the Society, who, under the Rules have power, with the sanction of the British Transport Commission, to vary the scales of benefits if the Actuary so recommends in his valuation report on the Fund.
