(2) In paragraph (1) of regulation 2 of the principal regulations for the words “subject to paragraph (2)” there shall be substituted the words “subject to paragraphs (1A) and (2)”.

(3) After paragraph (1) of regulation 2 of the principal regulations there shall be inserted the following paragraph:—

(1A) Any provision of the Act and of any regulation made thereunder whereby, for the purposes of the right to retirement pension of a woman by virtue of her own insurance, the yearly average of the contributions paid by or credited to her husband falls to be ascertained as at a specified date shall have effect in relation to a man to whom paragraph (1) of this regulation would otherwise have been applicable, and in whose case such date occurred in the contribution year which included the appointed day, as if the said yearly average were the number of contributions (not exceeding fifty-two) which bears the same proportion to the number of contribution weeks in the said contribution year as the number of contributions paid by or credited to him bears to the number of contribution weeks in the period from the beginning of that contribution year up to and including the contribution week preceding that in which the said date occurred..

Addition to the principal regulations

3.  After regulation 4 of the principal regulations there shall be added the following regulation:—

4A.(1) Subject to the following paragraph, as respects any insured person who—

(a)on the appointed day was over school leaving age and under pensionable age; but

(b)was not immediately before that day an existing contributor within the meaning of regulation 2 of the Pensions, Existing Contributors Regulations,

and who, having attained the age of sixty-five (or, in the case of a woman, sixty), did not enter insurance before the beginning of a period of one hundred and fifty-five contribution weeks ending immediately before the week in which that age was attained if that age was attained on the first day of that week, or in any other case before the beginning of a period of one hundred and fifty-four contribution weeks ending immediately before the week in which that age was attained, the following provisions shall apply:—

(i)no such person shall be liable to pay a contribution as an employed or self-employed person for any period after attaining the age of sixty-five (or, in the case of a woman, sixty);

(ii)every such person shall, in respect of each contribution paid by that person as an employed, self-employed or non-employed person, be entitled to a refund of that portion of the contribution which is attributable to widow's benefit and retirement pension, and for that purpose shall be entitled to a refund of the amount set out at the head of Column (2), (3), (4), (6), (7) or (8) of the Second Schedule to these regulations whichever is appropriate together with such interest thereon as will bring the total of the amount to be refunded up to the amount appropriate to the circumstances of the case as set out in the appropriate column.
