(b)all of the registered social landlord's secured creditors whom the Regulator can locate after making reasonable enquiries,

(c)the registered social landlord's tenants (so far as practicable),

(d)where the registered social landlord is a registered society, the Financial Services Authority, and

(e)where the registered social landlord is a charity, the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator.

(3)The Regulator must, when formulating proposals—

(a)have regard to the interests of the registered social landlord's creditors as a whole (both secured and unsecured), and

(b)so far as practicable, aim to avoid worsening the position of the registered social landlord's unsecured creditors.

(4)Proposals may provide for the appointment of a manager to implement the proposals (and proposals which do so must provide for the payment of the manager's remuneration and expenses).

(b)preferential creditors being paid different proportions of preferential debts (except where affected preferential creditors agree to be paid a smaller proportion).
