G4S plc v G4S Trustees Ltd and another

Pension – Pension scheme. A pension scheme that was closed to future accrual, but where the members' benefits continued to be linked to their final salary, was to be regarded as a 'frozen' scheme for the purposes of the Occupational Pension Schemes (Employer Debt) Regulations 2005, SI 2005/678, rather than an 'open' scheme. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, held that that was because such members ceased to be in pensionable service at the closure date and ceased to be active members.
