Status:

This is the original version (as it was originally enacted).

5Power by Order in Council to provide for the compensation of officers of public authorities and public utility undertakers on war service

(1)Where it appears to His Majesty that, in the case of any change affecting the exercise of functions of any public authority or public utility undertakers (not being a case to which the foregoing provisions of this Act apply), any enactment or statutory order makes provision for the compensation of affected officers of the authority or undertaking who hold office before any such change occurs, and that it is expedient to make provision for the compensation of persons who have been engaged in war service and have not been re-employed or have suffered loss of employment, reduction of emoluments or deterioration in their conditions of employment by reason of any such change, he may by Order in Council make provision for the compensation of the last mentioned persons similar to the provision made by the foregoing provisions of this Act for the compensation of officers of local authorities on war service. Any such Order in Council may make provision as respects changes in functions occurring before or after the date of the Order.

(2)Every Order in Council made under this section shall be laid as soon as may be before Parliament, and if an Address is presented to His Majesty by either House of Parliament, within the period of forty days beginning with the day on which any such Order is laid before it, praying that the Order be annulled, His Majesty in Council may annul the Order and it shall thereupon cease to have effect, but without prejudice to the validity of anything done thereunder in the meantime or to the making of a new Order. In reckoning the said period of forty days, no account shall be taken of any time during which Parliament is dissolved or prorogued, or during which both Houses are adjourned for more than four days.

(3)Section one of the Rules Publication Act, 1893, shall not apply to any Order in Council made under this section.

(4)Any Order in Council made under this section may be varied or revoked by a subsequent Order made in like manner.
