—(1) The employer of an Auxiliary Police Force mobilised under section 97 shall be entitled to be compensated by the Commissioner such reasonable remuneration as may be fixed by the Commissioner in respect of an auxiliary police officer in his employment who is mobilised under that section.
(2) In computing the remuneration under subsection (1), the Commissioner shall have regard to the following:
the expenses incurred by the employer in respect of the auxiliary police officer who has been mobilised; and
the profits which might reasonably be expected to be made by the employer in respect of the services of the auxiliary police officer had he not been mobilised.
(3) As soon as may be practicable after the mobilisation of any auxiliary police officer, there shall be given or sent to the employer of the officer, by such person and in such form and manner as may be specified by the Commissioner, a receipt for the mobilisation specifying —
the compensation, or the rate or amount thereof, offered in respect of the mobilisation; and
a statement of the effect of subsection (5).
(4) As soon as may be practicable after the end of the period of mobilisation of any property used by an auxiliary police officer that was supplied by his employer, there shall be given or sent to the employer of the officer, by such person and in such form and manner as aforesaid, a notice —
stating whether any, and if so what, damage to the property has occurred during the period of mobilisation (other than damage which has been made good by the Commissioner) or that the total loss of the property has occurred;
specifying the compensation, or the rate or amount thereof, offered in respect of the damage or loss; and
specifying the effect of subsection (6).
(5) A person to whom a receipt or notice under subsection (3) or (4) has been given or sent (referred to in this Act as the claimant) shall be deemed to have accepted the offer contained therein unless he notifies the Commissioner, within 4 weeks after he receives the receipt or notice, of his claim for a greater amount or rate.
(6) Where a notice under subsection (4) has been given or sent stating that no damage has occurred to any property during the period of mobilisation, the claimant shall be deemed to have agreed that no damage has so occurred unless he notifies the Commissioner, within 4 weeks after he receives the notice, of his claim that damage has so occurred and stating the compensation he claims in respect of the damage.
(7) On the receipt of a claim under subsection (5) or (6), the Commissioner may notify the claimant that he does not propose to make any further offer or that he makes a specified further offer.
(8) Before making any compensation under this Act, the Commissioner may require reasonable particulars of the damage to any property which was supplied by the employer to the auxiliary police officer during mobilisation and of the circumstances in which it occurred and may require a reasonable opportunity to be afforded to a person authorised by him to inspect the property.
(9) Nothing in this section shall operate so as to require the making of any payment of compensation before the end of the period of mobilisation of any property.
