*Williams v Trustees of Swansea University Pension and Assurance Scheme and another

Pension – Pension scheme. The appellant's appeal against the decision of the Court of Appeal, Civil Division, in a pensions dispute failed. He claimed that the reduced figure of his pension, resulting from its calculation by reference to his part-time, rather than full-time salary, had constituted 'unfavourable' treatment because of his inability to work full time. The Supreme Court held that the appellant's formulation depended on an artificial separation between the method of calculation and the award to which it would have given rise. It was enough that the award had not been in any sense 'unfavourable', nor could it reasonably have been so regarded.
