The Chair of the Local Pension Board introduced the report to the Committee. The purpose of the report was to provide Members with a review of the work and performance of the Board and its members between 1 April 2022 to 31 March 2023 and included a proposed Work Plan for 2023-2024.


Members thanked the independent Chair of the Local Pension Board  for a detailed and positive report and for the Board’s involvement in raising the issue of trade union representation on the NLGPS Joint Committee.


In a response to a Member query regarding what resources are required to continue to high quality work of the Fund, the Chair explained staff retention is difficult due to a national shortage of pension fund officers, therefore the maintaining and recruiting of staff should be a priority for Committee and the administering authority, Wirral Council.
