(a)a sum equal to the capital value determined under paragraph (a) of that subsection; and

(b)interest, payable at such rate as may be determined by the Minister, on so much (if any) of that sum as may from time to time be outstanding after the beginning of the financial year mentioned in the said paragraph (a).

(4)For the purposes of this section, the capital value mentioned in paragraph (a) of subsection (2) shall either—

(a)be determined by the Minister, or

(b)if the Minister so requires in the particular case, be determined by the actuary to the scheme in question and approved by the Minister,

(12)So much of—

(a)any payment by way of adjustment under subsection (9) which falls to be made, or

(b)any interest accrued under subsection (11),

as has not been paid shall be treated as a debt due.

(13)Nothing in this section affects the liability of the [F17Authority] in respect of any relevant pension obligations.

(14)For the purposes of this section, the “capital value of the attributable unfunded obligations”, in the case of any B.R. pension scheme, means such amount as is, in the opinion of the person determining that capital value pursuant to subsection (4), the capital equivalent of the payments that would, apart from this section, have been expected to be made by the Minister under section 52(1), so far as relating to the pension rights identified in the notice under subsection (1), for the successive financial years beginning with the one mentioned in subsection (2)(a).

(15)Any sums required for the making of payments under this section by the Minister shall be paid out of money provided by Parliament.]

(2)If the actuary to the basic scheme certifies that the assets of that scheme exceed its liabilities, then, in relation to the supplementation scheme, any obligation arising after the date of the actuary’s certificate to pay or secure the payment of any increases of pensions payable under the basic scheme or, if less, the relevant proportion of any such increases shall not be regarded as a relevant pension obligation for the purposes of any determination under section 55(1).

(3)In subsection (2) “the relevant proportion”, in relation to any increases, means, subject to subsection (4), the proportion (if any) certified by the actuary to the basic scheme to be the proportion of those increases which, if payable under that scheme, could be funded by 75 per cent. of the amount by which the assets of that scheme exceed its liabilities.

(4)Where any obligation arising after the date of a certificate under subsection (3) is an obligation to pay or secure the payment of a proportion only of any increases to which the certificate relates, then, in relation to that obligation, the relevant proportion for the purposes of subsection (2) shall be given by the formula—

where A is the first mentioned proportion and B is the proportion certified by the actuary.

(5)The Minister may direct the persons administering the basic scheme—

(a)to arrange for the actuary to the scheme to certify whether or not the assets of the scheme exceed its liabilities; and

(b)to send a copy of the actuary’s certificate to the Minister;

but no direction shall be given under this subsection within the period of three years beginning with the giving by the actuary of such a certificate.

(6)References in this section to the assets and liabilities of the basic scheme are references to the assets and liabilities of that scheme so far as it relates to the payment of pensions increases of which are or are likely to become payable under the supplementation scheme.

(a)any determination of the aggregate amount of the pensions, increases and expenses payable under or incurred in connection with the first-mentioned scheme; and

(b)any determination under section 55(1) in relation to that scheme,

it shall be assumed that the said rights had not been transferred and that the payment of any sum representing those rights had not been made.

7(1)Subject to sub-paragraph (2), the provisions of section 74 of the Transport Act 1962 (Minister’s powers to make provision about pensions in the nationalised transport industry) shall have effect on and after the appointed day as if—E+W+S+N.I.

(a)the expression “Board” included the successor company; and

(b)the references in subsection (1)(a)(ii) of that section to the Commission included references to the Corporation; and

(c)the reference in subsection (2)(a) of that section to a pension scheme in which employees of the Commission, or a subsidiary of the Commission, participated before the date there mentioned included a reference to a pension scheme in which employees of, or of a subsidiary of, the Corporation participated before the appointed day.

(2)Except on the application of the successor company, no order shall be made under the said section 74 on or after the appointed day which has the effect of placing the successor company or a subsidiary of the successor company in any worse position; but for this purpose the successor company or a subsidiary shall not be regarded as being placed in a worse position because an order provides that any changes in a pension scheme are not to be effected without the consent of the Minister.

(3)An order such as is mentioned in sub-paragraph (2) which is made without the application of the successor company shall not be invalid because in fact it does not have the effect of securing that the successor company and its subsidiaries are not placed in any worse position, but except in so far as the successor company approves the effect of the order the Minister shall as soon as may be make the necessary amending order.

(4)Subject to sub-paragraph (6), any order under the said section 74 and any regulations to which paragraph 17 of Schedule 7 to the M27Transport Act 1962 applies (which continues in force certain earlier pension provisions) which—

(a)are in force immediately before the appointed day; and

(b)relate to the Corporation, its employees or its pensions schemes,

shall continue in force, subject to any provision made by virtue of sub-paragraph (1), and as respects anything falling to be done on or after the appointed day shall have effect as if for any reference (however worded and whether express or implied) to the Corporation there were substituted a reference to the successor company.

(a)ceases to be employed by the Corporation and becomes employed by the successor company; or

(b)is employed by a company which immediately before the appointed day was a subsidiary of the Corporation but on that day becomes a subsidiary of the successor company,

shall not thereby cease to be eligible to participate in any pension scheme in which he was a participant immediately before the appointed day.

(6)Subject to sub-paragraph (5), a person who on or after the appointed day leaves or enters the employment of the group consisting of the successor company and its subsidiaries (in this sub-paragraph referred to as “the NFC group”) shall not be eligible by virtue of any provision of an order under the said section 74 made before that day—

(a)to participate in any of the Corporation’s pension schemes by reason of any employment outside the NFC group; or

(b)to participate in a pension scheme other than one of the Corporation’s pension schemes by reason of his employment within the NFC group.

(7)In this paragraph—

(a)participant”, in relation to a pension scheme, means—

(i)in relation to a scheme under which benefits are or will be receivable as of right, a person who has pension rights under the scheme (whether he has contributed or not); and

(ii)in relation to a scheme under which benefits are not or will not be receivable as of right, a person who (whether he is referred to in the scheme as a member, as a contributor or otherwise) has contributed under the scheme and has pension rights thereunder;

and “participate” and “eligible to participate” shall be construed accordingly;

(b)pension”, “pension rights” and “pension scheme” have the same meaning as in section 74 of the M28Transport Act 1962; and

(c)references to the Corporation’s pension schemes are to schemes established by the Corporation or in relation to which the rights, liabilities and functions of the Transport Holding Company were transferred to the Corporation by the M29British Transport (Pensions of Employees) (No. 1) Order 1968.
