Supplemental grants

6.—(1) The Postmaster-General may make from time to time, out of moneys provided by Parliament, grants to or in respect of persons to whom this part of these regulations applies for the purpose of supplementing pensions payable to or in respect of them by virtue of any of the existing pension schemes or the Cable and Wireless Pension Fund, in cases where the circumstances are such that grants for that purpose would have been made to or in respect of those persons by the Company, or by the trustees of any pension scheme established for that purpose, or by both the company and such trustees, by virtue of any agreement, arrangement, or customary practice of the Company (whether in operation on the thirty-first day of March, 1950, or coming into operation at any time after that date), if those persons had remained in the employment of the Company.

(2) The amount of the grant payable in any case shall be the amount which would have been paid to or in respect of the person concerned in the circumstances of that case if he had remained in the employment of the Company and had received the salary and emoluments which he actually received in respect of his service in the employment of the Post Office after the date of transfer.
