Hasn't the Government introduced a Safety Net for Pension Schemes?  
The Pension Protection Fund (PPF) was established by the Pensions Act 2004 and launched in April 2005. It will ‘compensate’ you if, as a pension scheme member, your pension scheme suffers a ‘qualifying insolvency event’. Generally, this means that the sponsoring employer has gone into receivership.
 
Crucially, any pension increases made under the PPF (before or during payment) are limited, and could be much lower than those that would have been available from your pension scheme.
