1.—(1) Where—

(a)immediately before the coming into operation of these Regulations the employment or former employment of a person by any body (“the former authority”) was employment by virtue of which any provision revoked by these Regulations (“the revoked provision”) applied;

(b)the former authority has ceased to exist by virtue of the Local Government Act 1992(1) or the Local Government (Wales) Act 1994(2);

(c)the liabilities of the former authority in respect of that employment which were relevant for the purposes of the revoked provision have been transferred to another body (“the new authority”),

then, if it would not do so apart from this paragraph, any provision of these Regulations corresponding to the revoked provision shall apply as if that employment had been employment with the new authority and as if that provision of these Regulations applied to it and to that authority.

(2) In determining for the purposes of these Regulations whether any employment at a time before these Regulations came into operation is employment with a LGPS employer, that employment shall be regarded as such employment if the employer was at that time a body mentioned in column 1 of Part 2 of Schedule 1 to the Local Government (Compensation for Premature Retirement) Regulations 1982(3) (educational bodies).
