Scotland Act 1998

Purpose and Effect

This paragraph amends section 1(6) of the Superannuation Act 1972.  The 1972 Act makes provision for the Principal Civil Service Pension Scheme (PCSPS) and those bodies entitled to be admitted to the Scheme are listed in Schedule 1 of the 1972 Act.  However, section 1(6) of the 1972 Act currently provides that no employment or office can be added to the schedule unless the persons employed are remunerated from the Consolidated Fund.  This amendment adds the Scottish Consolidated Fund to the criteria.
