EXPLANATORY NOTE

EXPLANATORY NOTE (This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations make a number of consequential amendments to the Local Government Pension Scheme constituted by the Local Government Pension Scheme Regulations 1997, as amended (“the principal Regulations”). Section 12 of the Superannuation Act 1972 provides that regulations made under section 7 of that Act may have retrospective effect: these amendments do have such effect from the various dates specified in regulation 1.

Regulation 3 deletes from the list of resolution bodies in regulation 4 of the principal Regulations the Service Authority for the National Crime Squad and the Service Authority for the National Criminal Intelligence Service, which on 1st April 2006 ceased to exist. Regulation 3 adds the Public Services Ombudsman for Wales and the Serious Organised Crime Agency to the list of resolution bodies. A resolution body is a body that may by resolution designate specified employees or a class of employees as eligible for membership of the Local Government Pension Scheme.

Regulation 4 deletes from the list of Scheme Employers in Schedule 2 to the principal Regulations the Commission for Local Administration in Wales.

Regulation 5 substitutes the names of two current administering authorities, the Public Services Ombudsman for Wales and Bradford Metropolitan District Council, in place of the names of two previous administering authorities in the Table in Part 2 of Schedule 5 to the principal Regulations, which specifies the appropriate fund for a member.

The Schedule to the Regulations makes various changes to the principal Regulations subsequent to the abolition of magistrates' courts committees under the Courts Act 2003.
