12(1)The Authority may appoint such officers and servants as it may determine with the consent of the Secretary of State as to numbers and remuneration; and any reference in this Act to an employee of the Authority is a reference to a person appointed in pursuance of this sub-paragraph or employed by the Authority in pursuance of paragraph 14 of this Schedule.

(2)If before such date as the Secretary of State may determine for the purposes of this sub-paragraph the Authority makes a contract with any person for his employment by the Authority, the contract shall be of no effect unless its terms have been approved by the Secretary of State; and before the Secretary of State approves in pursuance of this sub-paragraph the terms of a contract to be offered to a person employed in employment to which paragraph 1 of Schedule 9 to this Act applies it shall be the duty of the Secretary of State to satisfy himself that those terms, taken as a whole, are not less favourable to that person than the terms on which he is employed as aforesaid on the date when the offer is made.

(3)Different numbers, remuneration and dates may be determined in pursuance of this paragraph in relation to employees or proposed employees of different categories.

(4)The Secretary of State shall not give his consent in pursuance of sub-paragraph (1) of this paragraph except with the approval of the Minister for the Civil Service.

13(1)The Authority shall, in the case of such of its employees as may be determined by the Secretary of State with the approval of the Minister for the Civil Service, pay such pensions, allowances or gratuities to or in respect of them as may be so determined, make such payments towards the provision of such pensions, allowances or gratuities as may be so determined or provide and maintain such schemes (whether contributory or not) for the payment of such pensions, allowances or gratuities as may be so determined,

(2)If an employee of the Authority becomes a member and was by reference to his employment by the Authority a participant in a pension scheme maintained by the Authority for the benefit of any of its employees, the Authority may determine that his service as a member shall be treated for the purposes of the scheme as service as an employee of the Authority ; and the benefits payable to or in respect of a person by virtue of the preceding provisions of this sub-paragraph shall be in addition to the benefits, if any, which are payable to or in respect of him by virtue of paragraph 7 of this Schedule.

14(1)Notwithstanding anything in the last two preceding paragraphs, it shall be the duty of the Authority to make, to each person who at the passing of this Act and on such subsequent date as the Secretary of State may determine is employed by a relevant body, an offer of employment by the Authority on terms which, taken as a whole, are not less favourable to that person than the terms on which he is employed by the relevant body on the date when the offer is made ; and an offer made in pursuance of this paragraph shall not be revocable during the period of three months beginning with the date on which the offer is made.

(2)In the preceding sub-paragraph " relevant body " means a body which by virtue of section 27(1) of this Act is to cease or has ceased to have functions conferred on it in pursuance of section 7 of the [1949 c. 67..] Civil Aviation Act 1949.

15It shall be the duty of the Authority, except so far as it is satisfied that adequate machinery exists for achieving the purpose of this paragraph, to seek consultation with any organisation appearing to the Authority to be appropriate with a view to the conclusion between the Authority and that organisation of such agreements as appear to the parties to be desirable with respect to the establishment and maintenance of machinery for—

(a)the settlement by negotiation of terms and conditions of employment of employees of the Authority, with provision for reference to arbitration in default of such a settlement in such cases as may be determined by or under the agreements ; and
