(3) In computing any period of overtime for the purposes of regulation 22 or any period of duty for the purposes of regulation 23 (save for the purposes of paragraph (8)(f) thereof) the time occupied by such a member in relevant travelling, not exceeding such reasonable limit as may be fixed by the chief constable, shall be treated as a period of duty.

(4) For the purposes of regulation 42 the use of a motor vehicle for relevant travelling shall be treated as such use for the purpose of duties performed by the member concerned.
