HM Treasury have laid in Parliament a Public Consultation seeking views on two proposals for addressing past discrimination across the public service pension schemes following the McCloud judgment and a proposal for future pension provision. The consultation seeks views on proposals relating to the 2015 public service pension scheme reforms.

Consultation description

1. Consultation

  • Following the Court of Appeal judgment in December 2018, the government has been working to fix the discrimination identified in the policy of transitional protection that was part of the 2015 reforms to public service pension schemes. This consultation sets out the government’s proposals for addressing this discrimination along with the government’s plans for the future.

The scope of the schemes covered by this consultation can also be found on page 3 of the document itself. The consultation begins on 16 July 2020 and will close on 11 October 2020.

2. Update on the cost control element of the 2016 Valuations

  • Alongside the public consultation, the government is making a related announcement on the cost control mechanism, which can also be found on this page. This provides an update on the pause of cost control mechanism, and the next steps government will take.
