Only when your pay is reduced for any reason, is the Christmas Bonus affected. So if you are being paid you will get it.

I don't think that is right.
Assuming he hasn't had his contracted hours increased it would be 32.5 of 38 of £100 of the xmas bonus.
And possibly 75% of the £100 incentive underpin payment plus 25% of the 32.5/38 of £100 - (if the 4 week criteria applies to that, though some of that will be paid in January)

I don't think the incentive payment is pro rated to contracted hours like the xmas bonus?

4 Christmas Pay Supplement

The Christmas pay supplement of £100 for full time OPG and OSGs (pro-rated for part timers) will be paid on Friday, 22nd December. The eligibility criteria for the Christmas supplement payment will be the same as last year, based on the four December weeks (commencing Monday, 27th November). In the unlikely event of any Industrial Action the abatement criteria will be drawn from the PBS agreement.

The separate payment of £100 (pro rata for PT employees) agreed in the National Joint Statement – New Incentive Arrangements June 2012 will also be paid on Friday, 22nd December.

Unless I am corrected my understanding is that you have to complete the 4 weeks in order to receive the Xmas payments.

I may be getting confused that the Christmas Bonus is paid on your contracted hours at the start of the 4 week Christmas pressure period.
If you worked for 2 weeks only in the Christmas pressure period then your bonus would be halved against your contracted hours.

From the 2016 Christmas Pay Supplement documentation:

2. Part Time Employees.
Part time employees are entitled to the Christmas supplement on a pro rata basis. They will receive the payment pro-rata to a full time week according to their contracted hours on the date payment is made. Part-time employees that vary their contractual hours and work full-time for a two-week period during the Christmas pressure period (between Monday 28th November 2016 and Friday 23rd December 2016) will be paid the Christmas supplement in full. Note that overtime or scheduled attendance hours DO NOT contribute towards payment calculation.
