Laid before Parliament

3rd October 1957

Coming into Operation

4th October 1957

The Lords Commissioners of Her Majesty's Treasury, in exercise of the powers conferred upon them by section 2 of the Superannuation Act, 1957, and of all other powers enabling them in that behalf, hereby make the following Rules:—

1.—(1) Where, in connection with the extension of the Government service for the provision of medical and surgical treatment, including the supply and repair of artificial limbs and appliances, for war pensioners, a person was, at some time after the thirtieth day of April, nineteen hundred and thirty-five, and before the thirty-first day of August, nineteen hundred and fifty-three, taken into the civil service of the State as an officer or servant of the Ministry of Pensions after having been employed by the Governors of Queen Mary's (Roehampton) Hospital, and his employment by those Governors was, in the opinion of the Treasury, of the same nature and for the same purpose as his employment in the service of the State, his service in employment by those Governors before that time, but not before the first day of January, nineteen hundred and nineteen, shall be reckoned for the purposes of the Superannuation Acts as employment in an unestablished capacity within the meaning of section 3 of the Superannuation Act, 1935.

(2) Where the said Governors paid a gratuity to a person to whom the foregoing paragraph applies in respect of his service with the Governors before the first day of September, nineteen hundred and twenty-one, it shall be a condition of the making of any payment under the Superannuation Acts in respect of that person's service before that date, so far as that payment is dependent on the provisions of the foregoing paragraph, that there has been paid to the Exchequer a sum equal to such part of the said gratuity as is attributable to his service with the Governors after the thirty-first day of December, nineteen hundred and eighteen.

(3) These Rules shall not have effect so as to authorise an increase in an annual superannuation allowance or pension so far as the allowance or pension is payable in respect of a period before the coming into operation of these Rules.

2.—(1) In these Rules, the expression “the Superannuation Acts” means the Superannuation Acts, 1834 to 1950, and any Act amending those Acts.

(2) The Interpretation Act, 1889, shall apply to the interpretation of these Rules as it applies to the interpretation of an Act of Parliament.

3.  These Rules may be cited as the Superannuation (Roehampton Hospital and Civil Service) Transfer Rules, 1957, and shall come into operation on the fourth day of October, nineteen hundred and fifty-seven.
