Can an employer reduce a pregnant employee's pay as a result of a change in working pattern following a risk assessment?

I have a query in respect of the risk assessments which must be carried out in respect of individuals who are pregnant. If the risk assessment states that the individual should not work any night shifts and those night shifts attract a contractual enhancement, is it lawful to not pay the enhancements given that they will no longer be working the nights shifts?
