§ Mr. Swingler
asked the Minister of Transport if he will consult the British Transport Commission about the payments made to retired railwaymen, with a view to devising a scheme of payments to all retired railwaymen which is related to the current cost of living under Sections 27 and 28 of the Transport Act, 1953.
§ Mr. Marples
Responsibility for the pensions of retired railwaymen rests primarily with the British Transport Commission, to whom therefore the hop. Member should address his inquiries in the first instance.
