(b)in the case of a regular police officer who had elected to purchase increased benefits in accordance with the Police Pensions (Purchase of Increased Benefits) Regulations 1987(1), such additional 60ths as that officer would have been entitled to reckon under regulation 8(2) of the Police Pensions (Purchase of Increased Benefits) Regulations 1987 if, immediately before the date on which that officer’s transfer election takes effect, that officer had made an election under regulation G4 of the 1987 Regulations, multiplied by the conversion factor of 88%:

(b)in the case of a pension debit member, that officer’s pension debit under the 1987 Regulations shall be multiplied by the conversion factor of 105% and shall be treated as a pension debit under regulation 36; and
