HC Deb 10 June 1985 vol 80 cc371-2W
20. Sir William van Straubenzee

asked the Secretary of State for Transport what representations he has received from the National Bus Company as to the effect of the Transport Bill on the pension entitlements of its employees.

Mr. Ridley

The National Bus Company has made clear to me its concern on this matter. I have repeated the Government's commitment to ensuring that the pension funds" assets are adequate at the time of privatisation to discharge their responsibilities. I shall be discussing the matter further with the NBC.
