Provided that where, but for this proviso, by virtue of the preceding provisions of this section the date from which an annual superannuation allowance would have begun to accrue, or the date on which an additional allowance would have become due, falls before the date of the passing of this Act, the said allowance shall be deemed not to have begun to accrue, or, as the case may be, to have become payable, until the said date of the passing of this Act.

(3)Where a person who, at any time between the date of the commencement of the Teachers (Superannuation) Act, 19457 and the date of the passing of this Act, has been employed in contributory service by a local authority or by the managers or governors of a school maintained by a local education authority under the Education Acts, 1944 and 1946—
