(ii)the sum to be used as the amount of the transfer value shall be the sum notified to the Committee by the scheme managers as the sum which the Committee would have received in respect of the person had the transfer value been calculated and paid on the relevant date;

(b)if he became employed in his local government employment on or after 22nd April 1975, the calculation of the period he is entitled to reckon as reckonable service is to be made by reference to his age, and the annual rate of his remuneration, on the date when he became employed in his local government employment, if the transfer value in respect of him is received by the Committee more than one year after he became employed in his local government employment, on the date on which the transfer value is received;

(c)any sum representing interest which is included in the transfer value accepted is to be taken into account;

(3) the accrued pension in respect of the period last mentioned in paragraph 1 shall be deemed—

(4) where—

(a)the pensionable pay mentioned in sub-paragraph (1) relates to a period of part-time employment, the pensionable pay for that period shall be deemed to be the pensionable pay by reference to which the transfer value accepted would have been calculated had the person during that period been in a single comparable whole-time employment;

(b)the remuneration mentioned in sub-paragraph (2) relates to part-time employment, the annual rate of remuneration on the relevant date shall be deemed to be the annual rate of remuneration notified to the Committee by his local government employer as the remuneration which would have been paid in respect of a single comparable whole-time employment;

(5) in applying Schedule 16 in accordance with paragraph 1 of this Schedule in relation to a person who ceased to be employed in his non-local government employment on or after 6th April 1978 and whose non-local government employment was not contracted-out employment for the purposes of the Pensions Order, paragraphs 1(1)(c), 2(3) and (4) of Schedule 16 shall be ignored.
