HC Deb 30 January 1957 vol 563 cc171-2W
69. Mr. T. Brown

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation if he is now in a position to say whether he has approved the scheme, submitted to him as far back as November, 1956, by the Transport Commission, which deals with increase in pensions of those who were transferred to the Commission on vesting day.

Mr. Watkinson

No such scheme was submitted to me in November, 1956, or subsequently. As I informed the House on 28th March, 1956, the British Transport Commission introduced from 1st April a further scheme of supplements for superannuitants. This scheme did not require my approval.
