Joint Committee on Statutory Instruments Fifteenth Report


APPENDIX 1

Memorandum from the Ministry of Defence

NAVAL, MILITARY AND AIR FORCES ETC. (DISABLEMENT AND DEATH) SERVICE PENSIONS AMENDMENT ORDER 2003 (S.I. 2003/434)

1. The Ministry of Defence is aware that the Committee has previously asked for an indication of when the 1983 Service Pensions Order will be consolidated. The Ministry regrets that it has not yet been possible to begin work on consolidation as it has lacked the appropriate resources for this extensive piece of work. It is intended that a stewardship review be conducted shortly of the War Pension Scheme and in the light of that work to take forward the consolidation of the Service Pensions Order. We would plan to complete this task within the next two years.
