3.—(1) In this and in the next succeeding Rule the expression “officer” means a person who, having been employed in one or more of the following employments, that is to say—

(a)as officer or servant of a Local Authority in service all or any part of which was not pensionable employment; or

(b)in any other employment service in which was not then pensionable but was service in respect of which that person would, if he had continued in that employment, have become entitled to participate in the benefits of a Superannuation fund maintained under Part I of the Local Government Superannuation Act, 1937, or Part I of the Local Government Superannuation (Scotland) Act, 1937, or under a Local Act Scheme

left such employment (which employment is hereinafter referred to as the “former employment”) before the date specified in the next succeeding paragraph in order to become a civil servant in the department of the Assistance Board.

(2) The date for the purpose of the foregoing paragraph is such date (being a date before the 28th May, 1948), as from which a superannuation fund in the benefits of which the officer would or might have been entitled to participate had he continued in his former employment was authorised to be maintained.

(3) Subject to the provisions of Rule 4 hereof such part of the officer's service in the former employment as he would have been entitled to reckon as non-contributing service for the purposes of the Local Government Superannuation Act, 1937, the Local Government Superannuation (Scotland) Act, 1937, or a Local Act Scheme, had he continued in his former employment, shall, as to one half thereof, be reckoned for the purposes of the Superannuation Acts as service in the capacity of a civil servant:

Provided that in any case where the Treasury are satisfied that had the officer continued in his former employment he would have had a reasonable expectation of receiving a superannuation allowance, in respect of such part of his service in the former employment as he would have been entitled to reckon as aforesaid, of more than half the superannuation allowance payable in respect of a similar period of contributing service, the Treasury may direct that some higher proportion, not exceeding the whole, of the said part of his former service shall be reckoned for the purposes of the Superannuation Acts as service in the capacity of a civil servant.
