This is the original version (as it was originally enacted).
(1)In this Part, references to representing and soliciting are to representing and soliciting in any manner, whether expressly or impliedly and however the representation or solicitation is communicated, and include representations and solicitations made—
(a)orally (whether or not in the presence of the person being spoken to),
(b)in writing (whether or not by means of electronic communication), or
(c)by means of a statement published in any newspaper, film or radio or television programme.
(2)In construing references to soliciting or otherwise procuring money or promises of money, it is immaterial whether any consideration by way of goods or services is, or is to be, given in return for the money or promises of money.
(a)a solicitation of money or a promise of money for the benefit of a benevolent body is made in accordance with arrangements between a person and the body, and
(b)under those arrangements the person will be responsible for receiving on behalf of the body money or a promise of money given in response to the solicitation,
then (if the person would not be so regarded apart from this subsection) that person is to be regarded for the purposes of this Part as soliciting money or promises of money for the benefit of the body.
(4)Where a fundraising venture is undertaken by a professional fundraiser in the course of a radio or television programme, a solicitation which is made by a person in the course of the programme at the instance of the fundraiser is to be treated for the purposes of this Part as made by the fundraiser and not by the person (whether or not the solicitation is made by the person for any reward).
