Part I

Holders of Pensionable Office or Employment

1. Subject to the following paragraphs, in the case of an individual who is the holder of a pensionable office or employment, the proviso to section 236 (1) shall have effect with the substitution for the references to £500 of references to £500 less one-tenth of his pensionable emoluments for the year of assessment.

2. Where an individual is the holder of a pensionable office or employment during part only of the year of assessment, then—

(a) paragraph 1 shall not apply if the condition in section 235 (1) (a) is not satisfied at any time during that part of the year; but

(b) if the condition is satisfied at such a time and is also satisfied at a time during the remainder of the year, paragraph 1 shall apply but for one-tenth there shall be substituted therein such less proportion as may be just.

3. For the purposes of this Part, an individual's pensionable emoluments for any year of assessment shall be taken to be the amount, estimated in accordance with the provisions applicable to Schedule E, of any income of his for the year (but not including in the case of a married man income of his wife), being either—

(a) income arising in respect of remuneration from any pensionable office or employment, or

(b) income from any property which is attached to or forms part of the emoluments of any pensionable office or employment.
