8(1)In relation to employments of any class to which this paragraph applies, the Secretary of State may by regulations—

(b)make provision for other things which by or under Part III of this Act are required or authorised to be done by or to an employer to be done instead by or to the Secretary of State ;

(c)make provision for treating any employments of the class in question as employments under a single employer different from the employer in any other employment;

(d)make provision for the recovery by the Secretary of State of any state scheme premium from any person where it has been paid by the Secretary of State instead of by that person.

(2)Before making any regulations under this paragraph the Secretary of State shall consult with such bodies concerned with employments of the class in question as appear to him fairly to represent the interests of the employers and earners in those employments.

(3)Subject to sub-paragraphs (4) and (5) below, the employments in which an earner's service qualifies him for benefit under any of the following enactments shall constitute a class to which this paragraph applies—

Section 26 of the Fire Service Act 1947 ;

The Police Pensions Act 1948 ;

Sections 7 to 10 of the Superannuation Act 1972.

(4)Where service in any employment would qualify a person as aforesaid under any of the enactments specified in sub-paragraph (3) above but for rules having effect under section 2 of the Superannuation (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1948 (persons transferring to and from certain employments), the employment shall be treated as falling within the class to which that enactment relates and as not falling within any other class to which this paragraph applies.

(5)Where a local Act contains a provision for the payment of benefits in respect of service which but for the provision would qualify a person for such benefits under the enactments specified in sub-paragraph (3) above, that provision shall be deemed to be included among the enactments so specified.
