Supplementary provisions

Section 232: Power to modify provisions of this Part

848.This section provides a power for regulations to modify the provisions of this Part as they apply in prescribed circumstances.

Section 233: Construction as one with the Pensions Act 1995

849.This section makes it clear that words used in this Part of the Act should be interpreted as having the same meaning as they do in Part 1 of the Pensions Act 1995.
