(b)a pension scheme established under section 74 of the Act of 1962, or

(d)a pension scheme which does not fall within (a), (b) or (c) above but is a scheme in which employees of, or of a subsidiary of, the London Board are participating immediately before the 1st January 1970.

(2) Every established scheme shall, subject to the provisions of paragraph (3) of this Article, be construed and have effect as if the provisions of this Order were terms of the scheme, any other term thereof, whether express or implied, to the contrary notwithstanding, and each publicly owned transport body shall, for the purposes of giving effect to this Order, be bound by the terms of every such scheme.
