3. CHANGES SINCE THE 2000 VALUATION
3.1 There have been no amendments to the
legislation governing the scheme since the last valuation. The
amount of Grant in Aid payable from the Exchequer has not changed
since the last valuation and remains at £215,000 a year.
Three such payments were made by the Exchequer during the period
covered by this valuation.
3.2 No new awards of regular payments have
been made since the last valuation (except those made automatically
to a spouse on the death of a beneficiary) and none are expected
to be made in future. If this practice continues indefinitely,
the Fund would eventually have no beneficiaries in receipt of
regular payments, although it will be some decades before this
position is reached.
