7 Superannuation schemes, etc.E+W+S

(1)If, after receiving representations from the Corporation, the Secretary of State considers that a scheme established under section 37 of the M1Coal Industry Nationalisation Act 1946 (provisions as to superannuation etc. rights) does not provide for participation in any function conferred under the scheme by any organisation which appears to him to represent a substantial proportion of the members of the scheme, the Secretary of State may by order make such amendments of the scheme as he considers appropriate to secure such participation by that organisation.

(2)Before making an order amending a scheme under this section the Secretary of State shall consult the Corporation and any organisation which appears to him to represent a substantial proportion of the members of the scheme (other than any organisation representing members who are also represented by another organisation which he has consulted).

(3)References in this section to the members of a scheme do not include members who have ceased to be liable to pay contributions under the scheme.
