Commencement Orders bringing legislation that affects this Act into force:

Rules for computing period of service.S

7(1)In computing the period of service of an officer for the purposes of assessing any compensation payable to him, account shall, subject to the provisions of the sub-paragraphs of this paragraph, be taken of all the service in any capacity of the officer under any local authority, whether he was appointed annually or otherwise.

(2)Where the material date has occurred at any time other than the expiration of a complete year of an officer’s service, the portion then expired of that year shall be treated as a complete year if it exceeds six months and, if it does not, shall be ignored.

(3)Where the claim is in respect of the loss of a whole-time office or of two or more offices which in the aggregate involve the whole-time service of the officer, any previous period of part-time service shall be treated as though it were whole-time service for a proportionately reduced period.

(4)Where the claim is in respect of the loss of one or some only of several offices held by the officer, account shall not be taken of service in an office which the officer continues to hold unless throughout the period of his service in that office he devoted the whole of his time to the duties of the several offices held by him.

(5)Where the claim is in respect of the loss of an office held by an officer who while holding that office was also employed in an office the employment in which is ordinarily regarded as full-time employment, no account shall be taken of service in the last-mentioned office.

(6)If an officer was temporarily absent from his office during any war whilst serving in His Majesty’s forces or the forces of any Allied or Associated Powers or on any other form of war service within the meaning of the M1Local Government Staffs (War Service) Act, 1939, such period of temporary absence shall be reckoned as service under that authority:

Provided that in the case of an officer who after the eleventh day of November nineteen hundred and eighteen voluntarily extended his term of service in the forces, no period of absence during any such extension shall be reckoned.
