(d)the rates of payments under this section to members of a divisional executive for education or of a divisional executive for health services shall, instead of being determined by the executive, be determined by the local education authority within the meaning of the Education Acts, 1944 and 1946, or, as the case may be, by the local health authority within the meaning of the National Health Service Act, 1946.
