The Attorney-General

I beg to move, in page 34, line 43, at the end, to add: or be a contributory employee under the Local Government Superannuation Act, 1937, as applied by any local Act or other instrument; and, where a stipendiary magistrate holding office at the coming into force of this section gives notice of his desire that subsection (1) thereof should apply to him, any contributions previously paid by him as stipendiary magistrate under the said Act of 1937 as so applied shall be returned to him. This is an Amendment to deal with a special case, a superannuation scheme under a local Act.
