War injuries sustained by children, students and apprentices

7.—(1) This Article applies to any person not gainfully occupied who on the material date—

(a)had not attained the age of 15; or

(b)having attained the age of 15, was a student or apprentice;

being in either case a person who was not, immediately before the material date, suffering from physical or mental infirmity to such an extent as to preclude the likelihood of his ever being able to earn his living.

(2) Where a person to whom this Article applies has sustained a war injury (not being a war service injury), he shall be treated for the purposes of this Scheme, in all respects, subject to the provisions of paragraph (3) of this Article, as though he were a gainfully occupied person and any reference in Part III or IV of this Scheme to a gainfully occupied person shall, subject as aforesaid, be construed as including a reference to a person to whom this Article applies.

(3) An award under Part III of this Scheme in respect of a war injury (not being a war service injury) sustained by a person to whom this Article applies shall not be made in respect of any period before he has attained the age of 15, and shall only be made on his attaining that age if the conditions governing the making of the award are then fulfilled.
