Department of Work and Pensions defeated in Supreme Court

The DWP lost its appeal in the Supreme Court, against a ruling of the Court of Appeal, over the dividing line between between defined benefit and defined contribution pension schemes.

The ruling now means that the department will have to reconsider its legislation to ensure that pensions are protected where money purchase pension schemes run up deficits.
