“In section 30 of PSPA 2013 (new public body pension schemes), after subsection (4) insert—

‘(4A) The following provisions of this section do not apply to a new public body pension scheme which is made under section 20(3) of the Government of Wales Act 2006 (remuneration of members of the Senedd: pensions)—

(a) subsection (1)(e) (cost control);

(b) subsection (3) (Treasury consent).”—

This amendment concerns pension schemes for members of the Senedd that are established after 1 April 2015. It removes such schemes from the cost control mechanism contained in the Public Service Pensions Act 2013. It also disapplies the Treasury veto (contained in section 30(3) of that Act) over establishing or varying such schemes.

Brought up, read the First and Second time, and added to the Bill.
