To ask the Secretary of State for Transport (1) when he next plans to meet representatives of BR pensioners;
(2) when he plans to meet the chairman and chief executive of the BR Pension Fund Trustee Co. Ltd;
(3) what response he has made to the statement by BR pension fund trustees on the effect of the Government's proposals in the Railways Bill on the security of pensioners' entitlement.
