(c)in the calculation of the amount of such allowance, account has been taken of any period of service in respect of which such compensation is payable;

then, except as provided in sub-paragraph (3), such compensation—

then, except as provided in sub-paragraph (3), he shall not, so long as he holds that office or receives that increased remuneration, be entitled to receive, by way of compensation in respect of the office for which compensation is awarded, any greater sum than would make up the amount (if any) by which the remuneration which he is receiving falls short of the remuneration of the office in respect of which compensation was awarded.

(3) The Ministry may, on the application of the person concerned or of the body by which the compensation is payable, direct that the operation of sub-paragraph (1) or, as the case may be, sub-paragraph (2), in relation to that person, shall be modified so far as is, in the opinion of the Ministry, necessary in order equitably to meet the circumstances of the case.
