(5)An order under this section shall have effect notwithstanding anything in—

(a)any local enactment, or

(b)any regulations or other instrument made under the M57Transport Act 1947, or the M58Transport Act 1953, and continued in force by this Act, or

(b)An order shall not be invalid by reason that in fact it does not have the result of securing that all such persons are not placed in any worse position by reason of the provisions of the order, but if the Minister is satisfied or it is determined as hereinafter mentioned that any such order has failed to secure that result, the Minister shall as soon as may be make the necessary amending order.

(c)Any dispute arising between the Minister and any person as to whether or not the said result has been secured by any order under this section shall be referred to a referee or board of referees appointed by the Minister of Labour after consultation with the Lord Chancellor, or, where the proceedings are to be held in Scotland, after consultation with the Secretary of State, for his or their determination thereof.

(ii)to persons giving evidence before any such referees or board such allowances as he may with the consent of the Treasury determine.

(e)For the purposes of this subsection no person shall be regarded as being placed in a worse position because an order provides that any changes in a pension scheme are not to be effected without the consent of the Minister.

(5)No regulations shall be made under this section unless a draft thereof has been laid before Parliament and has been approved by a resolution of each House of Parliament.

(6)[F178The Secretary of State] may, with the consent of the Treasury, pay out of money provided by Parliament—

7(1)Before appointing a person to be a member of any Board, the Minister shall satisfy himself that that person will have no such financial or other interest as is likely to affect prejudicially the discharge by him of his functions as a member of a Board, and the Minister shall also satisfy himself from time to time with respect to every member of any of the Boards that he has no such interest; and any person who is, or whom the Minister proposes to appoint to be, a member of a Board shall, whenever requested by the Minister so to do, furnish to him such information as the Minister considers necessary for the performance by the Minister of his duties under this paragraph.E+W+S+N.I.
