§ Dame Irene Ward
asked the Minister of Transport if he will ensure that part of the liability for the newly agreed increase in respect of railwaymen's wages which is transferred from the British Transport Commission to Government account will also include an item in respect of railway superannuitants to cover a rise consistent with the Pensions (Iincrease) Act, 1959.
§ Mr. Marples
While I appreciate the hon. Member's concern in this matter, any question of increasing pensions for railway superannuitants is primarily a matter for the Commission.
