15.—(1) Where—

(a)a payment falls to be made by a body (“B”) which has at any time been a member of the Scheme in connection with a claim in respect of a liability to which the Scheme applies; and

(b)the claim relates to a breach of the duty of care by B whilst it was a member of Scheme,

the Secretary of State may, if the conditions specified in paragraph (2) are met, pay to B or on B’s behalf an amount determined by the Secretary of State under regulation 18.

(2) The conditions are that—

(a)before B’s membership of the Scheme ceases, the Secretary of State agrees with B that, in respect of the membership year immediately preceding the cessation of B’s membership, the amount to be paid by B under regulation 12 (duty of members to make contributions to the Scheme) is also to include an additional amount determined for the purposes of this regulation;

(b)that amount is determined by the Secretary of State as being sufficient to meet any liabilities of B falling within paragraph (1) which were incurred whilst B is a member but fall to be met after the date on which B’s membership ceases; and

(c)before that date, B either pays the additional amount in full or enters into an agreement with the Secretary of State to pay it in instalments.
