5.—(1) Interim compensation shall be payable as from the date of claim, and shall be at a rate not exceeding two-thirds of the net emoluments of the employment which the claimant has lost, less two-thirds of any unemployment benefit to which the claimant may be entitled, and less any sum to which the claimant may be entitled by way of compensation under the Re-instatement in Civil Employment Act, 1944.

(2) In determining the amount of interim compensation, the compensating authority shall have regard to any payments to which the claimant becomes entitled in consequence of the loss of his employment under any contract or arrangement with the authority or body by whom he was employed (other than payments by way of a return of contributions under a pension scheme).

(3) The payments shall be made at intervals equivalent to those at which the said emoluments were previously payable, and the payments shall be reduced or terminated if the claimant obtains other employment or the compensating authority are satisfied that he is not actively seeking employment or has unreasonably refused suitable employment which has been offered to him.

(4) If the claimant obtains other employment, he shall immediately notify the compensating authority in writing accordingly.

(5) The compensating authority may require, as a condition of making or continuing to make interim payments, that the claimant should be registered for employment at an Employment Exchange or the Appointments Department of the Ministry of Labour and National Service, at the option of the claimant.
