27Compensation for officers and servants

(1)The Secretary of State may, with the concurrence of the Minister for the Civil Service, make regulations providing for the payment by the Secretary of State, subject to such exceptions or conditions as may be prescribed in the regulations, of compensation to or in respect of persons who suffer loss of employment, or loss or diminution of emoluments, which is attributable to the provisions of this Part of this Act or of any regulations made thereunder.

(2)Regulations under this section may—

(a)include provision for the determination of questions arising under the regulations,

(b)be framed so as to have effect from a date earlier than the making of the regulations,

but so that regulations having effect from a date earlier than their making shall not place any individual in a worse position than he would have been in if the regulations had been so framed as to have effect only from the date of their making.

(3)Regulations under this section may contain such incidental, supplemental or consequential provisions as appear to the Secretary of State to be necessary or expedient for the purposes of the regulations.

(4)The power to make regulations under this section shall be exercisable by statutory instrument, which shall be subject to annulment in pursuance of a resolution of either House of Parliament.
