HC Deb 16 June 1959 vol 607 cc17-8W
50. Dame Irene Ward

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, in view of the fact that the British Transport Commission are unable to come into line with the Pensions Increase Act for the railway superannuitants, he will make arrangements, by the introduction of amending legislation or otherwise, for them to become for superannuation purposes a Treasury liability.

Mr. Amory

No. Superannuation arrangements are matters within the responsibility of the British Transport Commission.
