The Government will issue its proposals for the remedy to the discrimination found in the implementation of the 2015 Police Pension Scheme in the spring, it has been confirmed.

This will then be followed by a further consultation, likely to run for around 12 weeks, on the application of the remedy and the draft regulatory changes that will be needed.

In an update, Alex Duncan, the secretary of the Police Federation of England and Wales (PFEW), explains: “PFEW will, having taken any necessary further legal and actuarial advice, once again play a full role in responding and inputting to this consultation both as part of the Scheme Advisory Board and in its individual capacity in order to represent the interests of all its members.”

The Government proposals will be public sector wide and further details will be announced when they are available.
