The new regulations that apply to England and Wales come into force on 17 October 2008. They contain amendments relevant to the Local Government Pension Scheme 1997 and to the new Local Government Pension Scheme 2008 that replaced the 1997 Scheme in April 2008.

There are some regulations that make retrospective provisions in relation to the operation of the 1997 Scheme. Other regulations make minor amendments to extant provisions in the 1997 Regulations. There are also a number of other miscellaneous provisions.
