Memorandum by the Lord Chancellor's Department
Inner London Court Staff Pensions Order 2001
1. The Lord Chancellor's Department submits this
memorandum in response to the request dated 4 April 2001 on the
Article 2(1) refers to persons
who "immediately before the making of this Order are regarded
as members of the metropolitan civil staffs" for certain
purposes. Should the reference to the making of the Order be a
reference to its commencement?
2. Yes. This is an error for which the Department
apologises. The reference to the making of the Order in article
2(1) should be a reference to the commencement of the Order.
3. The Department is drafting an amending Order immediately.
It is intended that the amending Order will come into force on
the day after it is made. The Department very much regrets that
this will mean that there will not be 21 days between the laying
of the amending Order and its commencement. However in view of
the need to clarify urgently the pension position of those persons
affected (although these are believed to be few in number) the
Department considered it necessary to bring the amending Order
into force without delay.
