The Superannuation (Anti-Locust Research Centre and Civil Service) Transfer Rules 1964


27th October 1964

Laid before Parliament

3rd November 1964

Coming into Operation

4th November 1964

The 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 a person was on the 1st April 1961 taken into the civil service of the State as an officer of the Colonial Office after having been employed by the Anti-Locust Research Centre, and his employment 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 the employment of the Anti-Locust Research Centre before the 1st April 1961 may 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 a person to whom the foregoing paragraph applies was, before he was taken into the service of the State, a participant in a pension scheme under which contributions were paid in respect of him by the Anti-Locust Research Centre and under that scheme he has been granted or is eligible for any benefit other than a return (whether with or without interest) of the contributions made by him, it shall be a condition of the making of any payment under the Superannuation Acts in respect of his service, so far as the amount of that payment is dependent on the provisions of the foregoing paragraph, that there has been paid to the Treasury within three months of the coming into operation of these Rules, or within such longer period as the Treasury may allow in any particular case, a sum equal to the aggregate amount of the contributions paid in respect of him by the Anti-Locust Research Centre, together with compound interest thereon calculated from the date on which each such contribution became payable at the rate of 3 per cent. per annum with yearly rests.

(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 Superannuation Acts” means the Superannuation Acts 1834 to 1960.

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

3.  These Rules may be cited as the Superannuation (Anti-Locust Research Centre and Civil Service) Transfer Rules 1964 and shall come into operation on 4th November 1964.
