Compensation of Displaced Officers (War Service) Act 1945

Status:

This is the original version (as it was originally enacted).

10(1)If a person receiving compensation under this Act—

(a)obtains any office or other public appointment; or

(b)receives, by virtue of the special Act, or of anything done in pursuance of or in consequence of the special Act, any increase of the emoluments which were enjoyed by him at the date as at which the compensation was assessed,

he shall not, so long as he holds that office or other public appointment or receives those increased emoluments, be entitled to receive any greater sum by way of compensation in respect of the office for which compensation is awarded than would make up the amount, if any, by which the emoluments which he is receiving falls short of the emoluments of the office in respect of which compensation was awarded:

Provided that where a person held two or more offices at the date as at which the compensation was assessed or has been awarded compensation in respect of two or more offices, the Minister may, on the application of that person or of any authority by whom the compensation is payable, modify the operation of the foregoing sub-paragraph in relation to that person so far as is, in the opinion of the Minister, necessary in order equitably to meet the circumstances of the case.

(2)Where an officer to whom compensation has been awarded under this Act subsequently becomes entitled to a superannuation allowance in respect of any office or other public appointment which he has accepted after the material date, and in calculating the amount of such allowance account is taken of any period of service in respect of which compensation is payable, then, if the compensation does not exceed such part of the superannuation allowance as is attributable solely to that service, the compensation shall cease to be payable, and if it exceeds such part of the superannuation allowance as aforesaid, it shall be reduced by an amount equal to that part of the allowance.

(3)Where an officer to whom compensation has been awarded under this Act has also recovered, whether before or after the award of compensation under this Act, compensation under the Reinstatement in Civil Employment Act, 1944, the last-named compensation shall be treated for the purposes of sub-paragraph (1) of this paragraph as if it were emoluments received by virtue of the special Act during the period of twelve months beginning with the date on which that compensation was recovered.
