HC Deb 20 July 1993 vol 229 cc158-9W
Ms Glenda Jackson

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.

Mr. Freeman

Discussions are taking place with the trustees and their actuaries about arrangements for the proposed closed fund for pensioners. I should be happy to meet pensioners' representatives again if they wish.
