(2) Subject to this regulation, an officer who performs the whole of the duties of a higher office shall be paid, in respect of the performance of those duties, an allowance at a rate equal to the difference between his rate of annual salary and the rate of annual salary payable to an officer occupying the higher office or, if a scale of rates of annual salary is applicable to the higher office, the rate of annual salary payable to an officer occupying that higher office and in receipt of salary at the minimum rate in that scale.

Amended by 1972 No. 85 r. 12 (3) Where an officer performs, for a period of less than one week, the duties of a higher officer, being an office the rate, or maximum rate, of salary for which exceeds the rate specified in the third column of the table in sub-regulation (2) of these Regulations in relation to a class 2/3 office, then, unless the Parliamentary Head in special circumstances otherwise determines, the officer shall not be paid an allowance for the performance of those duties for that period, and that period shall not be included in any period of service for the purposes of this regulation.

(4) Where-

(5) An officer who performs the duties of a higher office for a period of less than one day shall not be entitled to payment for that period and that period shall not be service in the higher office for the purposes of this regulation.

(6) Where an officer temporarily performs the whole of the duties of a higher office for a continuous period of more than twelve months after the date on which he first commenced to perform those duties, he may, after the completion of each period of twelve months' performance of those duties, be granted increments of allowance of the same amounts as are payable as increments of salary to an officer occupying the higher office.

(7) Where an officer temporarily performs the whole of the duties of a higher office in periods that are not continuous but aggregate in the total a period of more than twelve months, he may, at the completion of each such total period of twelve months, be granted an increment of allowance of the same amount as is payable as an increment of salary to an officer occupying the higher office if-
(a) in the case of the first increment-the total period of twelve months' performance of higher duties is completed within the period of twenty-four months that immediately precedes that completion; and
(b) in the case of any subsequent increment-the total requisite period of performance of higher duties is completed within the period of time equal to twice the total period of performance of duties of the higher office that immediately precedes that completion.

(8) For the purposes of the last two preceding sub-regulations, performance of the whole of the duties of another office having the same classification as, or a higher classification than, the higher office referred to in either of those sub-regulations shall be deemed to be performance of the whole of the duties of the higher office.

(9) Paragraph (b) of sub-regulation (7) of this regulation does not operate to authorize the grant of an increment to an officer unless he has received the first or a subsequent increment in the allowance payable under this regulation for a period of, or for periods totalling, twelve months.

(10) For the purpose of determining the date from which an increment in an allowance is payable under this regulation, and for the purpose of determining whether the performance of the duties of a higher office has been for a continuous period-

(b) an officer who performs the duties of a higher office immediately before he is absent from duty on leave of absence granted under section 73 of the Act shall be deemed to have performed the duties of a higher office during his absence, if the salary payable to the officer in respect of the period of his absence included, by reason of sub-regulation (2) or (3) of regulation 49 of these Regulations, an allowance in respect of the performance of the duties of a higher office.

Substituted by 1972 No. 85 r. 12 (12) The date from which an increment in an allowance is payable to an officer under this regulation is not affected by an alteration in the classification of the higher office the duties of which are performed by the officer, being an alteration in relation to which a notice is published in the Gazette under sub-section (4) or (5) of section 29 of the Act.

(13) Where an officer who is performing the whole of the duties of a higher office is promoted under section 9 of the Act to that office or to another office of the same classification, he shall not suffer any reduction in his remuneration, and he may receive the same increments that he would have received had he, during the period for which he performed the duties of the higher office, been the permanent occupant of that office.

(14) Where an officer is promoted under section 9 of the Act to an office and, prior to his promotion, has performed the whole of the duties of a higher office of the same classification as the office to which he is promoted but is not performing those duties when he is promoted, the period for which he performed those duties shall be taken into account for the purposes of his incremental advancement in the same manner as it would have been taken into account under sub-regulation (7) of this regulation if he had not been promoted.

(15) Where an officer who is or has been performing the whole of the duties of a higher office is promoted under section 9 of the Act to an office of lower classification than the office the duties of which he is or has been temporarily performing, his remuneration upon promotion shall be the same as the remuneration which he would have received had his period of service in the higher office been service in the office of lower classification.

(16) Where an officer performs the whole of the duties of a higher office and is in receipt of a salary above the minimum salary payable to an officer occupying the higher office, he shall, upon commencing to perform the duties of the higher office, be paid such allowance (if any) as will cause his total remuneration to be the same as that which would have been payable under regulation 77 of these Regulations if he had been promoted to the higher office.

(17) Where an officer temporarily performs the whole of the duties of an office the conditions of service in which differ from those in the office occupied by the officer, he shall be subject to the first-mentioned conditions as though he occupied that office.
