The position of railway superannuitants is primarily a matter for the British Transport Commission.
The Guillebaud Committee reported to the British Transport Commission and the railway unions jointly and the Report is being considered by them within the established negotiating machinery.
Having regard to the fact that the Guillebaud Report did not deal with railway superannuitants, has the British Transport Commission made any suggestions about dealing with them? Is my right hon. Friend aware that when I asked my right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer about railway superannuitants yesterday he suggested that I should put down a Question to my right hon. Friend the Minister of Transport? Can my right hon. Friend explain to me why people in work are always entitled to have their claims considered while people who have done useful service on the railways are always neglected? It is absolutely monstrous.
