(b)provide for any assets, liabilities or conditions to be determined under the order.

(3)An order under sub-paragraph (1) has effect in relation to any assets or liabilities to which it applies despite any provision (of whatever nature) which would otherwise prevent, penalise or restrict the transfer of the assets or liabilities.

(4)A right of pre-emption, right of irritancy, right of return or other similar right—

(a)does not operate or become exercisable as a result of any transfer of assets by virtue of an order under sub-paragraph (1), and

(b)accordingly has effect in the case of any such transfer as if the Regulator were the same person in law as Ministers and as if no transfer of the assets had taken place.

(5)Such compensation as is just is to be paid (by Ministers or by the Regulator or by both) to any person in respect of any such right which—

(a)would but for sub-paragraph (4) have operated in favour of, or become exercisable by, that person, but

(b)because of the operation of that sub-paragraph, cannot subsequently operate in the person's favour or (as the case may be) become exercisable by the person.

(6)An order under sub-paragraph (1) may provide for the determination of disputes as to—

(a)whether and, if so, how much compensation is payable, and

(b)the person to whom or by whom it is to be paid.

(7)A certificate given by Ministers which states whether an asset or liability has, or has not, been transferred by virtue of an order under sub-paragraph (1) is conclusive evidence of whether the asset or liability has been so transferred.
