(b)so as to require or authorise the payment of pensions to or in respect of such persons.

(3) No provision shall be made by any regulations by virtue of paragraph (2) unless any person who is placed in a worse position than he would have been in if the provision had not applied in relation to any pension which is being paid or may become payable to him is by the regulations given an opportunity to elect that the provision shall not so apply[F1 in relation to that pension except as provided by paragraph (3A)].
