(c)be payable at such intervals not exceeding three months as the Treasury think fit.

(3)The foregoing provisions of this section shall have effect as from the first day of July, nineteen hundred and fifty-one, (the salary under this section of a judge or magistrate who held office on that day beginning from that day instead of from the date of his appointment); and any judge or magistrate who held office on that day, or was appointed after that day and before the commencement of this Act, shall be deemed for the purpose of any enactment relating to superannuation, to have received his salary under this section from that day or from the date of his appointment, whichever is the later.

(4)A direction of the Secretary of State under section thirty-two of the Justices of the Peace Act, 1949, about the salary to be paid to a stipendiary magistrate other than a metropolitan police magistrate—

(a)may have retrospective effect, and may apply to the salary of a magistrate who has died or ceased to hold the office before the giving of the direction; and

(b)may direct the payment, for any period for which the salary payable to a metropolitan police magistrate other than the chief magistrate has been retrospectively increased, of a salary of an amount up to that of the increased salary so payable;

and any magistrate about whose salary a direction under the said section thirty-two has retrospective effect shall be deemed for the purpose of any enactment relating to superannuation to have received the salary specified in the direction from the day from which the direction has such effect in his case.

(5)The salary payable to any paid chairman or deputy chairman of the quarter sessions for the county of London under section forty-two of the Local Government Act, 1888, may at any time be increased by resolution of the county council, approved by the Lord Chancellor, and any such resolution may have retrospective effect, and may apply to the salary of a chairman or deputy chairman who has died or ceased to hold the office before the passing of the resolution; and any chairman or deputy chairman about whose salary such a resolution has retrospective effect shall be deemed for the purpose of any enactment relating to superannuation to have received the salary specified in the resolution from the day from which the resolution has such effect in his case.

(6)A direction of the Secretary of State or resolution of the London county council may by virtue of subsection (4) or subsection (5) of this section have retrospective effect from a day before the commencement of this Apt, but not before the first day of July, nineteen hundred and fifty-one, and may apply to the salary of a person dying or ceasing to hold office before the commencement of this Act.
