(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—
