British Steel agrees restructuring deal ‘in principle’ with TPR, PPF

first_imgLesley Titcomb, TPR chief executive, emphasised that there were still “important details to be finalised” before giving the RAA the green light.In a statement, Titcomb said: “Good progress is being made in our discussions with Tata Steel UK and the trustees about the future of the British Steel Pension Scheme.“Pension restructurings which involve an RAA are rare, and we will only approve an RAA where stringent tests are met, so that they are not abused by employers seeking to inappropriately offload their pension liabilities.“We also continue to work with Tata Steel UK and the trustee in respect of the proposal to offer members an option to transfer to a new scheme sponsored by Tata Steel UK, which may occur should the approval to the RAA be granted, or stay in the BSPS and receive PPF compensation. The successor scheme would be subject to qualifying conditions.”Johnston said in a statement on the British Steel scheme’s website: “Although the PPF is an important safeguard for pension schemes generally, the trustee [board] believes that the BSPS has sufficient assets to offer members the potential for better outcomes by enabling them to transfer to another scheme offering modified benefits.“For most scheme members, these modified benefits are expected to be of greater value than those they would otherwise receive by transferring into the PPF.“Tata Steel UK’s willingness in principle to sponsor a new scheme post-RAA, subject to conditions agreed with the BSPS trustees, paves the way to allowing members to make a choice based on their personal circumstances. Discussions are progressing constructively and we expect to be in a position to communicate the final outcome to members soon.”Pensioner members transferring to the PPF would receive benefits in full, but annual increases are capped at 2.5%. Members yet to retire receive 90% of their annual pension income, capped at £34,655.05 a year.A spokesperson for the PPF said: “Members of the scheme can be reassured that we are there to protect them throughout this process and they will be able to receive at least PPF levels of compensation, should they remain in the scheme and BSPS enter the PPF assessment period.” Tata Steel is to pump £550m (€640.8m) into the British Steel Pension Scheme (BSPS) as part of a major restructuring agreed in principle with trustees and the UK regulator.“Discussions are progressing constructively and we expect to be in a position to communicate the final outcome to members soon.”Allan Johnston, chair of trusteesThe deal will also see the pension fund take a 33% equity stake in Tata Steel UK.The restructuring will take the form of a regulated apportionment arrangement (RAA), an option the BSPS trustee board has been advocating since Tata Steel first sought to cut its pension costs. While far from finalised, the RAA signals a landmark moment for UK defined benefit pension schemes, given the high-profile nature of the case.Both the Pensions Regulator (TPR) and the Pension Protection Fund (PPF) said the agreement met their published principles for allowing an RAA.Crucially, this included the two organisations agreeing that Tata Steel UK was facing insolvency if its pension costs were not addressed.However, the arrangement is still subject to a 28-day approval period as the regulator and the PPF analyse the details.As part of the deal, and subject to approvals from TPR, Tata Steel UK will sponsor a new scheme, to be set up using assets from the existing BSPS. No details have been agreed, but BSPS’s trustee board said the new scheme would offer “modified benefits”.BSPS members would be given the option of moving to the new scheme, or remaining with the original scheme, which will transfer to the PPF.This new scheme is subject to qualifying conditions set by TPR. If these are not met, the full £15bn scheme would transfer to the PPF. Allan Johnston, chair of trustees, maintained that “most” members would be better off in the new arrangement.“Pension restructurings which involve an RAA are rare, and we will only approve an RAA where stringent tests are met.”Lesley Titcomb, chief executive, TPRlast_img read more

Govt won’t create new euthanasia laws – John Key

first_imgStuff co.nz 8 June 2015The Government will not put euthanasia on its work programme but will support an inquiry into the issue, the Prime Minister says.But for any law to be passed, a private member’s bill will have to be put before Parliament .Prime Minister John Key’s comments come as debate strengthens over the right to die, following Wellington lawyer Lecretia Seales’ bid for the courts to rule in favour of assisted suicide.Seales died on Friday of natural causes, after a long battle with cancer. Just hours before she died, Seales was made aware of Justice David Collins’ ruling on her case – that Parliament was the only body that could legislate for euthanasia to become legal.At his post-Cabinet press conference on Monday, Key said he was personally sympathetic to her case, but a Government-sponsored bill would not occur, because it would never make it through the National caucus.Nor was it an issue he was prepared to whip caucus support for, but he laid out the process in which a law-change might occur.http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/politics/69210987/Govt-will-back-euthanasia-inquiry-but-won-t-create-new-laws-says-John-Keylast_img read more

Villa on the up after win

first_img Benteke broke the deadlock from the penalty spot with his 15th goal of the campaign and N’Zogbia made the points safe with a superb free-kick. Ashley Westwood’s late own-goal could not prevent Villa’s first win in nine league games and ended a run of four successive home league defeats. Press Association Villa started brightly and Andreas Weimann missed a golden opportunity to put them ahead after less than two minutes. Hammers keeper Jussi Jaaskelainen failed to hold a dipping shot from Benteke and the rebound fell to Weimann unmarked six yards out, but the Austrian placed the ball wide of the far post with the goal at his mercy. Andy Carroll, fresh from his winner against Swansea last weekend, was only just too high with a first-time lob which landed on the top of the net and left Villa keeper Brad Guzan back-pedalling. Carroll and Villa defender Nathan Baker both needed lengthy treatment after a clash of heads when attacking the ball from N’Zogbia’s corner. West Ham were forced into a change after 24 minutes with right-back Joey O’Brien suffering a leg injury and replaced by Guy Demel. Villa skipper Ron Vlaar shot just over at the near post after attacking a Westwood corner but play struggled to move out of second gear during the opening 45 minutes. West Ham dominated the early stages of the second period possession-wise and appealed in vain for a penalty after a challenge by Vlaar on Carroll. Ciaran Clark made a crucial clearance from a Mohamed Diame ball into the danger area after Guzan had failed to make a clean punch on his attempted clearance. Villa boss Paul Lambert made a double change after 63 minutes with Darren Bent and January loan signing Simon Dawkins replacing Jordan Bowery and Weimann respectively. N’Zogbia curled a shot just past the far post after being teed up by Benteke. After 74 minutes, though, Villa were celebrating as they broke the deadlock. Referee Mark Clattenburg awarded a penalty when Mark Noble had brought down N’Zogbia, and up stepped Benteke to send Jaaskelainen the wrong way with his spot-kick. With 11 minutes left N’Zogbia doubled Villa’s lead with a superb free-kick after Tomkins brought down Bent. Westwood unintentionally set up a tense finale when he headed the ball past Guzan from a Joe Cole cross. Then in injury-time Guzan blocked a shot from Kevin Nolan and turned aside a Carlton Cole header but Villa survived. center_img Aston Villa moved out of the Barclays Premier League bottom three as second-half goals from Christian Benteke and Charles N’Zogbia earned them a 2-1 victory over West Ham at Villa Park.last_img read more

Gerrard influence pleases Rodgers

first_imgLiverpool manager Brendan Rodgers insists captain Steven Gerrard can continue to influence matches and is far from finished as a pivotal player for the club. “At this moment in time I know Steven Gerrard,” said Rodgers, who restored his captain to the side after resting him against Stoke at the weekend. “If I can manage his training and games he can still have real impact for this team. “Even though he is approaching 35 at the end of this year he still has fantastic qualities but like every other player, no matter how good they are, the wheels are out and they are ready to land – but he is not ready to land yet. “At this stage of his career it is about the level of the game and he is a very important player for us. “He is not 24 any more. You have to do that (manage workloads) with players at this part of their career so it is about mapping out the rest of the season for him. “I think you saw the energy in his legs tonight and his influence in the game, especially as it wore on. It was an outstanding performance from Steven and an excellent goal.” Gerrard appears in no rush to make a decision on his future. “I’ll decide when I’m ready. There’s nothing to say on the contract at the moment,” he told BT Sport. The Reds midfielder, who is delaying making a decision on the offer of a new contract – believed to be a one-year deal – to extend his stay beyond the summer, scored the crucial second in a 3-1 win at Leicester. It helped Liverpool come from behind after Simon Mignolet’s unfortunate own goal had been cancelled out by Adam Lallana’s 50th career league goal and, after Wes Morgan was sent off, Gerrard even had a hand in his side’s third for Jordan Henderson. “When there is, the fans have known me long enough, I’ll come out and say what I need to say.” Gerrard’s demotion to the bench on Saturday, having been a high-profile substitute in the Bernabeu against Real Madrid in the Champions League last month, sparked rumours of a rift between him and his manager. Rodgers insists nothing could be further from the truth but he did admit Gerrard and the team may be benefiting from the recent move to switch him to a more advanced role behind the striker. “We spoke again yesterday just to confirm that we hadn’t fallen out with each other!” added the Reds boss. “As a coach you look at the players you have in order to get the best out of them. “He has a natural instinct to get forward and join in and his combinations with Raheem (Sterling) and Rickie (Lambert) were very good and he arrived in that spot when the ball was cut back for a great finish. “He was outstanding tonight but it is something that I have always known.” Leicester manager Nigel Pearson, whose side have now lost six and drawn two since beating Manchester United in October, had a row with a disgruntled fan after another defeat. “I had a spat with a fan towards the end. I don’t know what they are looking at at times,” he told BT Sport. “If they cannot see the players are having a proper go maybe they need to stay at home. “The players are giving everything. I will always look for the positives. It is very easy for people to look at what we are not good at. “I don’t like the commitment of my players being questioned. If they honestly think they are not committed, they are very wrong. Maybe that is why I stay in the stand.” Press Associationlast_img read more

IHOC : Lakers outlast Syracuse in testy, physical contests

first_img Published on February 13, 2011 at 12:00 pm Contact Ryne: rjgery@syr.edu Following another pileup in front of the Syracuse net, Orange forward Megan Skelly and Mercyhurst’s Jess Jones got into a shoving match. Skelly skated to the penalty box for hitting after the whistle.There, she joined teammate Ashley Cockell, who was called for roughing 25 seconds earlier.The pushing and shoving was a constant part of Syracuse’s two-game series with No. 5 Mercyhurst. Both teams played physically in an intense conference matchup that ended in another Lakers sweep of the Orange. The physical play resulted in 28 total penalties and plenty of power-play opportunities.The all-out play came at a cost, though. Syracuse took penalties for roughing, hooking, checking, interference and hitting after the whistle, which led to 14 Mercyhurst power plays in the series. And in crucial situations, that cost the Orange.‘We have to stay out of the box and just mind what we say to the refs and how we control our sticks,’ SU head coach Paul Flanagan said.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe Orange didn’t break through and beat the conference powerhouse, but it did force the Lakers to earn everything they got. The smaller and younger Syracuse was not intimidated by Mercyhurst like it has been in the past.‘We definitely stepped it up as compared to last series against Mercyhurst,’ Skelly said. ‘We want to beat them. Everyone hates Mercyhurst.’The hatred for a Mercyhurst team SU has never beaten was on display all weekend. The Orange pestered the more talented Mercyhurst squad from the first whistle.Flanagan said he was proud of his team’s response to the physical play.‘There was a lot of situations where a player went into the boards or just went after someone,’ Flanagan said. ‘Our kids laid their body on the line.’Flanagan said the officials overcompensated to control the physical play. He said the referees’ quick whistles affected the flow of Friday’s 4-0 loss, in which Mercyhurst had nine power plays and Syracuse had seven.The head coach felt the officials should have let the teams battle more before calling penalties. In an effort to control the game, he said the officials were inconsistent.‘Some of them are just little love taps when (the referee’s) calling slashing,’ Flanagan said. ‘Then someone gets railed, and there’s no call.’Against the nation’s highest-scoring offense, nine power plays in one game were too many to overcome. Flanagan said the penalty kill, which limited Mercyhurst to two goals in those nine chances, kept the Orange in the game.But it also prevented SU from scoring goals.‘We’ve got a lot of our better players, offensive players killing penalties, and you can’t kill nine penalties,’ Flanagan said. ‘You just wear out your best offensive players, so that’s what’s tough.’The Orange fought off six Mercyhurst power plays until the Lakers scored their third goal on a five-on-three advantage in the third period to put the game out of reach Friday.In both games, the Lakers earned power-play goals in the deciding periods. Freshman goaltender Kallie Billadeau, who recorded 40 saves in both games, said the power-play opportunities cost SU its chance to make a comeback.‘A lot of their goals were on the power play,’ Billadeau said. ‘I feel like we were kind of shooting ourselves in the foot, especially in that third period.’The physical play left SU exhausted by the end of the weekend. But the Orange proved it could match Mercyhurst’s intensity and style of play. It was a total team effort despite being overmatched physically.Flanagan said the challenging weekend was good for Syracuse. The physicality brought out the best in his team. He said the Orange needs to bring that effort to the ice for the rest of the season.‘That effort that we responded to a real physical game was really important because that’s tough,’ Flanagan said. ‘A lot of nights, it’s just not like that.’rjgery@syr.edu Commentscenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

UW looks to end regular season on high note

first_imgRiding the momentum from a big upset win over then No. 47 Indiana, the Wisconsin women’s tennis team hopes its confidence will carry it to more wins in the last weekend of the regular season.On Friday, Wisconsin (11-10, 2-7 Big Ten) will travel to Iowa City to take on the Iowa Hawkeyes.Iowa (8-12, 2-7 Big Ten) is coming off a loss at No. 14 Michigan and are losers of four out of its last five matches.Head coach Brian Fleishman can sense the confidence that his team has from the win over Indiana last Sunday and hopes that will factor into strong play from the team this weekend.“For coaching girls, confidence is everything, momentum is everything,” Fleishman said. “So I think us having that big win on Sunday, the girls are going to go against Iowa thinking that we did a great job against a quality team in Indiana, let’s go out and do the same thing against Iowa.”Wisconsin beat the Hawkeyes last year in a close 4-3 match.This year Iowa features Sonja Molnar, who is ranked No. 65 in the ITA rankings in singles play.Molnar is coming off of a huge singles win over No. 11 Emina Bektas of Michigan.Fifth-year senior Alaina Trgovich is coming off an important singles win of her own after taking down then No. 65 Leslie Hureau of Indiana last weekend.Trgovich knows that the win over Indiana will help them as they ready for a matchup with Iowa Friday.“We are going to go in there with a lot of confidence,” Trgovich said. “That was a huge win against Indiana. We are going to go in there with a lot of momentum and expecting to win. They are a good team; they have kind of been struggling a little bit like us, so I think it is going to be a good match.”Sunday the Badgers wrap up the regular season at home against No. 18 Nebraska (21-3, 7-2 Big Ten). The upcoming matchup with the Cornhuskers marks the end of the regular season and senior day for the Badgers’ veterans.Nebraska is the No. 4 team in the Big Ten and is coming off a win at Michigan State last weekend.Although Sunday’s match marks the first Big Ten meeting between Nebraska and Wisconsin, the Badgers did play the Cornhuskers last season, losing 6-1. While the Badgers lost last year’s matchup, Wisconsin still leads the all-time series 4-2.Fleishman knows Nebraska is going to be a major test for his team but is looking forward to it.“Nebraska is a great team. They had made the Big Ten that much tougher,” Fleishman said. “It’s going to be a tough match, but if we can use the home court to our advantage that will sort of be an equalizer. If the girls compete well it will be a good match.”The Cornhuskers have two players ranked in the top 100 in singles play, with No. 45 Mary Weatherholt as their top threat.Nebraska also boasts a doubles pair in the ITA rankings with Madeleine Geibert and Stefanie Weinstein coming in at No. 53. The duo has only lost five matches this season.Junior Hannah Berner is looking forward to the matchup with the Cornhuskers but is sad to see the end of the season so near.“I can’t believe the season is ending already,” Berner said. “I’m so excited [to play Nebraska]. We played them last year, fortunately, so we got a little scouting from that. They are a very tough team, but I feel like we have played better and better as the season has gone on so I think it’s going to be our best match so far.”last_img read more

Corcoran: One hell of a ride

first_imgSometimes you’re riding your bike on the road that is university life when a pair of train tracks comes your way.You could choose to avoid the tracks like your typical, self-aware person, or you could ride as close to the edge as possible. The possibility of having your tire slip into the gap between the tracks and the asphalt is practically slim to none anyway.But sometimes, the next thing you know, you have a hole in your new favorite pair of pants and you’re spouting obscenities while picking gravel out of your hands in the middle of a darkened Campus Drive, hoping no one saw you.I lost the pants before their prime, but sometimes growing up is as jarring as getting launched off your bike unexpectedly onto the cruel asphalt below. In a way, my three-year ride as a member of The Badger Herald sports section has been the same way.I came into my freshman year with only one career option in mind: sports journalism. I picked up a Daily Cardinal within my first week of school, but I left it in a bag someplace and forgot about it.Then my friend Laura pointed me in the direction of the Herald after she saw online the sports department had openings. I am eternally indebted to her because, without that notice, I may have never emailed Mike Fiammetta — who was still listed as the sports editor because the Herald’s website hadn’t been updated yet.I sent that email, Mike put me in touch with Ian McCue (the actual sports editor at the time) and that Sunday, Sept. 9, I walked into the Herald life, which was unusually warm at the old office above Madhatter’s bar.I never looked back. I was too busy with my life enveloped in Wisconsin’s sports to look back.Although I’ve devoted the last three years of my life to covering sports, including the last year as sports editor, it was never really about the sports.Don’t get me wrong: I love everything about sports and I’ve relished all the mesmerizing opportunities I’ve had as part of the Herald. I was able to go to the Big Ten men’s hockey tournament last year and the Big Ten football championship game and Sweet 16 this year.But more than anything, it wasn’t the sports I was covering that I cared about; it was the people. Depending on what side you see of me, I can be anything from fairly inhibited and quiet to the loudest person in the room. But even if I felt uncomfortable and introverted while at a game or practice, when it came time to conduct an interview, my curiosity took over.And to be quite honest, the people I enjoyed interviewing most had no affiliation with revenue sports. I covered women’s basketball as a freshman and then women’s soccer as a sophomore, and some of my fondest memories were from those two semesters. I knew absolutely nothing about soccer, but women’s soccer head coach Paula Wilkins quickly became one of my favorite people to talk to week in and week out over the course of the season.There were others like women’s basketball assistant Alysiah Bond and women’s hockey head coach Mark Johnson that I enjoyed just as much. There were times last spring when I was already writing two stories for an issue, but picked up a women’s hockey story just so I had an excuse to go talk to Johnson.And that desire to get to know people and hear their stories is what has kept my passion for journalism going, despite all the times I may have fallen off my bike onto the pavement both literally and figuratively.As a sophomore last spring, I struggled to adapt to the new role as sports content editor and I often felt like I was picking myself off the ground. I started out clueless, spent a lot of late nights in the office — sometimes as late as 3:30 in the morning — and wondered if it was really worth it.Now as I look back, it was worth every crash of my bike. Not because of the sports, but because of the people. The people I got to talk to, and more importantly, the people I interacted with at the Herald nearly every day for the last year and a half, all of whom I have come to love as my family. And not just Heralders, but everyone else in my life that has gotten me this far because God knows I can’t see all the unsuspecting train tracks out there.You all know who you are. Thanks for a hell of a ride.last_img read more
