Dear Richard

FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT 2000 - INFORMATION REQUEST

Your request for information has now been considered and I am pleased to provide you with the details below:

1. If yes, when did you comply with this ruling?
Yes. Day Crewing Plus is pensionable. Temporary promotion is defined by: If they were already in receipt of temporary promotion and in the 1992 or 2006 pension schemes, it continues to be pensionable until they lose it (either by promotion or reverting to the substantive post). Any further temporary promotion would then be non-pensionable. If they transfer into the 2015 pension scheme then they lose it immediately.

2. If no, why haven't you complied with this ruling?
Not applicable
