Detail of outcome
A summary of responses, and the government’s response to the consultation on proposed changes to the firefighters’ pension schemes in England. The equality statement considers the impact of the 2013 to 2014 pension contribution increases on protected groups.
This statutory consultation seeks views on the proposed increase in employee contribution rates from 1 April 2013 for members of the Firefighters’ Pension Scheme (1992) and New Firefighters’ Pension Scheme (2006).
The department has also considered the impact of the proposed 2013 to 2014 pension contribution increases on protected groups (like older scheme members, those on maternity leave or part time workers) and this is set out in the partial equality statement.
