In this Act, unless the context otherwise requires, the following expressions have the meanings hereby assigned to them that is to say:—

  • “Period of the present emergency” means the period beginning with the first day of September, nineteen hundred and thirty-nine, and ending with such day as the Governor of Northern Ireland may by Order in Council declare to be the date on which the emergency that was the occasion of the passing of this Act came to an end;

  • Definitions rep. (exc. as respects superannuation of certain existing officers) by 1950 c.10 (NI)

  • “War service” means service, during the period of the present emergency, in any of the naval, military or air forces of the Crown, and any employment during that period which the Ministry of Home AffairsF1 considers may properly be treated for the purposes of this Act in the same manner as service in those forces;

  • “War service pay,” in relation to the remuneration which any person would have received if he had continued to serve in any capacity with a local authority, means his pay (including marriage, family and other similar allowances) in respect of his war service, or, in a case where he ceased to serve not only in that capacity but also in any other such capacity or capacities in order to undertake war service, an amount which bears the same proportion to his pay (including marriage, family and other similar allowances) in respect of his war service as the remuneration which he would have received if he had continued to serve in the first mentioned capacity bears to the total remuneration which he would have received if he had continued to serve in both or all of those capacities.
