(b)as regards any officers or persons employed in whose case it may be determined by the Authority with the approval of the Lord President of the Council so to do, pay to or in respect of them such pensions, or provide and maintain for them such pension schemes (whether contributory or not), as may be so determined.

(3)Where any officer of or person employed by the Authority, being a participant in any pension scheme applicable to his office or employment, becomes a member of the Authority, he may be treated for the purposes of the pension scheme as if his service as a member of the Authority were service as an officer of or person employed by the Authority, and his rights under the scheme shall not be affected by any provision of this Act which requires that the pensions or payments towards the provision of pensions to be paid or made in the case of members of the Authority shall be determined by the Lord President of the Council with the approval of the Treasury.

(4)Except with the consent of the Lord President of the Council, the Authority shall not terminate on security grounds the employment of any officer of, or person employed by, the Authority. In this sub-paragraph the expression " security grounds " means grounds which are grounds for dismissal from the civil service of Her Majesty, in accordance with any arrangements for the time being in force relating to dismissals from that service for reasons of national security.
