It was reported that the proposal for FE/HE institutions in England to no longer be required to offer membership of the Local Government Pension Scheme to new entrant non-teaching staff was not considered to be a significant issue in Lancashire. With regard to the McCloud legal case the Head of Fund reported that it was still unclear as to the impact the decision would have on the Local Government Pension Scheme.
Recommendation: That the updates on regulatory matters set out in the report and given at the meeting are noted.
