One of Her Majesty's Principal Secretaries of State

Dated 26th November 1984

EXPLANATORY NOTE

By Schedule 2 to the National Heritage Act 1983 the governing body of an institution, which has been duly designated by the Secretary of State under that Act, is required to offer, by such date as the Secretary of State may determine, employment to each person who was immediately before the date of designation employed in the civil service of the State for the purposes of that institution.

The terms of employment offered have to be such, that taken as a whole, they are no less favourable to the employee than those held by him in the civil service, and the offer has to remain open for 3 months. If the person does so change his employment he then enjoys continuity of employment and his employment with the designated institution is included as one to which a scheme under section 1 of the Superannuation Act 1972 (c. 11) can apply, and the Schedule to that Act is accordingly construed as if it included a reference to the institution. Disputes as to whether terms taken as a whole are less favourable may be referred to the industrial tribunal.

The institution may not be designated unless is satisfies the conditions provided for by section 31 of the Act that it has as a main object the collection, exhibition or retention of articles relating to the history and traditions of some section of the armed forces of the Crown, and that immediately prior to designation at least one of its staff was employed in the civil service.

This Order effects the necessary designation in the case of the Portsmouth Royal Naval Museum and the Royal Navy Submarine Museum.
