Commencement Orders yet to be applied to the Local Government (Scotland) Act 1947

Commencement Orders bringing legislation that affects this Act into force:

318 Transfer and compensation of officers on transfer of functions. S

(1)The provisions of this section shall apply in relation to officers of local authorities affected by any transfer of functions by this Act or by virtue of any provision of this Act.

(2)Any existing officer who in consequence of the transfer of functions or of anything done following thereon suffers any direct pecuniary loss by reason of the determination of his appointment or the diminution of his emoluments and for whose compensation for that loss no other provision is made by any enactment or statutory order for the time being in force shall be entitled to payment, by the transferee authority or such other authority as the authorities concerned may agree or the Secretary of State may determine, of compensation:

Provided that, in the case of an officer of justices of the peace entitled to compensation in consequence of a transfer of functions under Part XVI of this Act, the compensation shall, as respects both the transfer of functions to the county council and the transfer of functions to town councils of burghs within the county, be paid by the county council, but each of the said town councils shall pay to the county council such proportion of the compensation as may be agreed upon between the councils concerned, or, failing agreement, as may be determined by the Secretary of State.

(3)An existing officer who, at any time within five years after the date on which the transfer of functions takes effect, relinquishes office by reason of his having been required to perform duties which are not analogous to, or which are an unreasonable addition to, those which he was required to perform immediately before that date shall be deemed for the purposes of this section to have had his office determined in consequence of the transfer of functions and, unless the contrary is shown, to have suffered direct pecuniary loss in consequence thereof by reasons of such determination.

(4)An existing officer whose appointment is determined or whose emoluments are reduced within five years after the date on which the transfer of functions takes effect because his services are not required or his duties are diminished (no misconduct being established) shall be deemed, unless the contrary is shown, to have suffered direct pecuniary loss in consequence of the transfer.

(5)The provisons set out in the Eleventh Schedule to this Act (being provisions as to the determination and payment of compensation to officers in case of transfer of functions) shall apply for the purposes of this section.

(6)The payment of compensation by way of a lump sum shall be a purpose for which a local authority may borrow, so however that any sum so borrowed shall be repaid within a period of five years from the date on which the payment of the lump sum is made.
