(3) The provisions of the enactments, and of the schemes and other instruments for the time being in force thereunder, which relate to the Manchester Corporation Pension Fund, (including the provisions of the Local Government Superannuation Acts 1937 to 1953 and of any relevant instruments thereunder so far as applicable to the said Fund) (all which provisions are hereafter in this Article referred to as “the pension provisions”) shall, subject as hereafter provided in this Article, apply to the Passenger Transport Executive contributors as they apply to contributors who are or have been officers or servants of the Manchester Corporation, and the pension provisions shall, subject as aforesaid, have effect in relation to the Passenger Transport Executive contributors as if the references therein to officers or servants of the Manchester Corporation or to service of or under the Manchester Corporation included references to officers or servants of the Authority, to members, officers or servants of the Executive and to directors, officers or servants of a subsidiary of the Executive and to service as such a member, director, officer or servant, as the case may be, but nothing in this Article shall have the effect of conferring or imposing upon the Executive the functions of the Manchester City Council under the pension provisions with respect to the making of a scheme or to the valuation, investment or general administration of the Manchester Corporation Pension Fund.

(4) In their application to those of the Passenger Transport Executive contributors who are or have been officers or servants of the Authority or directors, officers or servants of a subsidiary of the Executive, the pension provisions shall have effect as if the Authority or the subsidiary (as the case may be) were the Executive, so that for the purposes of the pension provisions the Executive shall have the responsibilities and the functions of the employer of those persons.

(5) The Executive shall in relation to the Passenger Transport Executive contributors—
