HL Deb 15 December 1949 vol 165 cc1656-7

Clause 33, page 33, line 45, at end insert— ("(11) A determination for the purposes of the last foregoing subsection with respect to the stipendiary magistrate serving in any office at the date when this section comes into force may be given—

  1. (a) at any time on or after the said date and before he ceases to serve in that office, by the authority paying his salary in that office; or
  2. (b) on his censing to serve as a stipendiary magistrate, by the authority liable for any pension payable to him under this section;
and a determination under paragraph (a) of this subsection may be varied by a subsequent determination (whether under that paragraph or under paragraph (b) of this subsection) so as to increase, but not so as to reduce, the extent to which any service is to be taken into account.")


My Lords, this new subsection will enable the question whether a serving stipendiary will be allowed to count more than half his previous service towards pension to be determined by the borough council before the period of six months within which the stipendiary has to decide whether or not to come within the provisions of the clause. I beg to move that this House do agree with the Commons in the said Amendment.

Moved, That this House do agree with the Commons in the said Amendment.— (The Lord Chancellor.)

On Question, Motion agreed to.
