Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Order)
These Regulations make provision with respect to the payment of pensions to widows or widowers or for the benefit of children of deceased Prime Ministers or Speakers of the House of Commons.
Section 27 of the Parliamentary and other Pensions Act 1972 (c. 48) provides the basis for the payment from the Consolidated fund of pensions to widows or widowers or for the benefit of children of deceased Prime Ministers or Speakers: the section provides for designated provisions of the Parliamentary pension scheme to have effect as if the Prime Minister or Speaker concerned had at the time of his death been entitled in respect of service as a Member of the House of Commons to receive a pension under the Parliamentary pension scheme.
These Regulations designate for the purposes of section 27 those provisions of the Parliamentary pension scheme contained in regulations K1, K2 and K3 of the Parliamentary Pensions (Consolidation and Amendment) Regulations 1993 which are to apply in relation to the widows, widowers or children of deceased Prime Ministers and Speakers.
