In pursuance of section 15(3) of the Superannuation (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1967, I hereby make the following Regulations:—

EXPLANATORY NOTE

By section 15 of the Superannuation (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1967, which comes into operation on 1st November 1968, the pensions of the metropolitan civil staffs, that is to say the civil staffs of the metropolitan police and the justices' clerks and other officers of the inner London area, are regulated by the civil service superannuation provisions as applied by that section subject to any modification specified in regulations.

In the past, these pensions have been regulated by Orders made by the Secretary of State on principles similar to those applying in the civil service.

These Regulations modify the civil service provisions, as applied by section 15, so as to preserve vested rights under the old Orders arising in two cases where the date of operation of the old Order was later than that of the corresponding civil service provision.
