9.—(1) The provisions of this Rule shall have effect in relation to an officer in substitution for the provisions of section thirty-four of the Act.

(2) If, after the passing of Act—

(a)the employment of an officer is terminated at his own request after he has attained the age of fifty years; and

(b)no superannuation allowance or additional allowance can be granted to him apart from the provisions of this Rule,

the same superannuation allowance and additional allowance, if any, may be granted to him as might have been granted to him if he had retired from the approved employment upon a medical certificate:

Provided that, unless the Treasury otherwise determine on compassionate grounds, no such allowance shall be granted to a person by virtue of this Rule before he attains the age which would have been the retiring age for him if he had continued in the employment in which he was when he was last a civil servant. And Provided further, that no such allowance shall be granted under this Rule to a person who, after ceasing to be employed in approved employment, becomes employed in the Civil Service of the State.

(3) Where an officer who would have been eligible for the grant of a superannuation allowance but for the operation of the first proviso to paragraph (2) of this Rule dies without any such allowance being granted to him, the Treasury may grant to his legal personal representatives such gratuity, if any, as might have been granted to them if he had died on the last day on which he was employed as a civil servant.
