EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations provide that the Scottish Parliamentary Pension Scheme and the First Minister and Presiding Officer Pension Scheme shall be treated for the purposes of the Pension Schemes Act 1993 (c.48)as public service pension schemes.

The Scottish Parliamentary Pension Scheme and the First Minister and Presiding Officer Pension Scheme were established by the Scotland Act 1998 (Transitory and Transitional Provisions) (Scottish Parliamentary Pension Scheme) Order 1999 ( S.I. 1999/1082). Both of these pension schemes were continued by the Scottish Parliamentary Pensions Act 2009 (asp 1)(the “2009 Act”), which also makes further provision in relation to them. These Regulations ensure that both schemes continue to be treated as public service pension schemes further to the changes in the 2009 Act.
