I wish to ask a very brief question on this matter. Subsection (7) of this Clause relates to superannuation of justices' clerks and their staff. In some authorities these clerks have opted under a local Act to sacrifice some of their pension so that in the event of their early death their widows might reap the benefit. All I am asking is whether this subsection covers that point. I should like to have an assurance to that effect.

I think that really is the purpose of the subsection. It is to attract those cases into the Bill.

Question put, and agreed to

Clause ordered to stand part of the Bill.
