Status:

This is the original version (as it was originally enacted).

4Power to pay compensation in certain additional cases

(1)Where any person has been engaged in war service and it appears to the authority to whom, any claim for compensation under section two or section three of this Act would be made by that person that he would have been entitled to claim such compensation but for the fact that his war service came to an end before the date on which the special Act came into operation or, as the case may be, the school became a special agreement school or a controlled school or was discontinued, the authority may, if in all the circumstances of the case it considers it just to do so, pay the like compensation as if his war service had continued until the said date.

(2)Any person applying for compensation by virtue of this section shall make a claim therefor in accordance with the Schedule to this Act, but shall include in the statement delivered with the claim such further particulars as may be prescribed, and the said Schedule (and in particular paragraph 8 thereof which gives a right of appeal to the Minister) shall apply in relation to the authority's decision on the claim in like manner as in the case of decisions on other claims.
