§ Amendment made: In page 4, line 40, leave out the word "rights," and insert instead thereof the words "superannuation fund, and superannuation scheme."—[Sir H. Jackson.]
§ 11.45 p.m.
§ Sir H. JACKSON
I beg to move, in page 4, line 41, at the end, to insert the words:'reduction' in relation to remuneration includes a reduction by way of deduction or refund.While reductions in salary have been made in some cases, there are others where salaries have not been reduced but reductions from salary have been made and the amounts refunded to the authority as a contribution towards the financial emergency. The expression 1636 "reduction" is used in the Bill and it is desirable to make it clear that it includes any such deduction or refund.
§ 11.46 p.m.
§ Mr. SHAKESPEARE
I can assure the hon. Gentleman that "reduction" means plain reduction, deduction or refund.
§ Amendment, by leave, withdrawn.
