The item was introduced by Vicky Jenks (Pensions Administration Delivery Lead), who reminded members that the meeting had been rescheduled from 30 September. As a result the item on abatement would be considered at the November meeting and the item on the discretions policy would be discussed in February. Members were told the November meeting date had been incorrectly listed as being on the 15 when it had been scheduled for 7 November. Vicky Jenks said the proposed training relating to Matthews had been postponed as the processes behind it had not been agreed yet.
Members noted the contents of the forward plan.
