Grenville Holden Hampshire v Board of the Pension Protection Fund

Case Name and Reference NumberDecisionRepresentationCourt and Judgment DateCitation
Grenville Holden Hampshire v Board of the Pension Protection Fund

A3/2015/0237
Grenville Holden Hampshire appealed against a determination of the Pension Protection Fund (PPF) Ombudsman in the High Court arguing that:

• the government was in breach of the EU Insolvency Directive (Directive 80/987/EEC, superseded by Directive 2008/94/EC but in materially identical terms), which imposed a requirement on member states to ensure that scheme members should receive at least 50% of their benefits where there is an insolvent employer, and

• furthermore, that the Directive had direct effect on UK legislation requiring UK law to be read as including this requirement

Article 8 of the EU Insolvency Directive
