(c)the appropriate amount reduced by the amount of any increases under section 105 of the Pension Act, and

(d)any increase to which the wife had been entitled under paragraph 5 above.

(4) Where the wife dies after 5th April 2000, the amounts referred to in paragraph 5(2)(b) above are the following—

(a)one-half of the increase mentioned in paragraph 5(1)(b) above, so far as attributable to employment before 6th April 1988,

(b)one-half of the appropriate amount after it has been reduced by the amount of any increases under section 105 of the Pensions Act, and

(c)one-half of any increase to which the wife had been entitled under paragraph 5 above.

(16) Paragraph 5(1) of that Schedule (inserted by sub-paragraph (15)) has effect, where W is a man who attained pensionable age before 6th April 2010, as if paragraph (a) also required him to have been over pensionable age when S died.

(17) In paragraph 7 of that Schedule—

(a)in sub-paragraph (1), for “paragraphs 5 and 6” substitute “paragraphs 5 to 6”, and

(b)in sub-paragraph (2), for “paragraph 5 or 6” substitute “paragraph 5, 5A or 6”.

(18) In paragraph 8 of that Schedule, for sub-paragraphs (3) and (4) substitute—

(3) In the case of the following pensions (where “P” is a married person and “S” is the other party to the marriage), that is—

(a)a Category B retirement pension to which P is entitled by virtue of the contributions of S, or

(b)P’s Category A retirement pension with an increase under section 51A(2) above attributable to the contributions of S,

the reference in paragraph 2(3) above to the pension to which a person would have been entitled if that person’s entitlement had not been deferred shall be construed as a reference to the pension to which P would have been entitled if neither P’s nor S’s entitlement to a retirement pension had been deferred.

(4) Paragraph 4(1)(b) above shall not apply to a Category B retirement pension to which S was or would have been entitled by virtue of W’s contributions (“W” and “S” having the same meaning as in paragraph 4(1); and where the Category A retirement pension to which S was or would have been entitled includes an increase under section 51A(2) above attributable to W’s contributions, the increase to which W is entitled under that paragraph shall be calculated as if there had been no increase under that section..
