(2)The “reorganisation conditions” are—

(a)that some or all of the purposes of the charity—

(i)have been fulfilled as far as possible or adequately provided for by other means,

(ii)can no longer be given effect to (whether or not in accordance with the directions or spirit of its constitution),

(iii)have ceased to be charitable purposes, or

(iv)have ceased in any other way to provide a suitable and effective method of using its property, having regard to the spirit of its constitution,

(b)that the purposes of the charity provide a use for only part of its property, and

(c)that a provision of the charity’s constitution (other than a provision setting out the charity’s purposes) can no longer be given effect to or is otherwise no longer desirable.

(3)A “reorganisation scheme” is a scheme for—

(a)variation of the constitution of the charity (whether or not in relation to its purposes),

(b)transfer of the property of the charity (after satisfaction of any liabilities) to another charity (whether or not involving a change to the purposes of the other charity), or

(c)amalgamation of the charity with another charity.

(4)Nothing in section 40 affects the power of the Court of Session to approve a cy près scheme in relation to a charity.

(5)Sections 39 and 40 do not apply to any charity constituted under a Royal charter or warrant or under any enactment.
