LONDON (Reuters) – Britain’s pensions lifeboat said it would vote in favour of Toys R Us UK’s restructuring plan at a creditors meeting on Thursday after securing additional payments to the retailer’s pension fund.

The move by the Pension Protection Fund (PPF) means the creditors’ vote on Toys R Us UK’s Company Voluntary Arrangement (CVA) is likely to be passed, enabling the retailer to stave off administration.

The PPF said Toys R Us UK had agreed to pay 9.8 million pounds into the pension plan.

Earlier this week the PPF said it would vote against the plan but changed its position after talks.
