Schedule 1Effect of Section 1 in Certain Cases

Contracts of employment and pensions

2It is hereby declared for the avoidance of doubt that—

(a)the effect of section 1 of this Act in relation to any contract of employment with British Aerospace in force immediately before the appointed day is merely to modify the contract (as from that day) by substituting the successor company as the employer (and not to terminate the contract or vary it in any other way) ; and

(b)section 1 is effective to vest the rights, liabilities and obligations of British Aerospace under any agreement or arrangement for the payment of pensions, allowances or gratuities in the successor company along with all other rights, liabilities and obligations of British Aerospace ;

and accordingly for the purposes of any such agreement or arrangement (as it has effect by virtue of section 1(3) in relation to employment with the successor company or with a wholly owned subsidiary of that company) any period of employment with British Aerospace or with any wholly owned subsidiary of British Aerospace which becomes a wholly owned subsidiary of the successor company on the appointed day shall count as employment with the successor company or (as the case may be) with a wholly owned subsidiary of that company.
