Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Order)

This Order raises two separate limits which are imposed by the Credit Unions Act 1979.

1.  The limit on the deposits which a credit union may take from persons too young to be members is increased from £750 to £5,000.

2.  The periods for which credit unions may make loans. Most credit unions have only been able to make unsecured loans for two years and secured loans for five years. These limits are now increased to three and seven years respectively. For those credit unions which held a certificate under section 11C of the Credit Unions Act 1979 the permitted loan periods for loans made by the credit union at a time when it has a general reserve which is not less than 10 per cent. of its total assets have been four years for unsecured loans and ten years for secured loans. These limits are now increased to five and twelve years respectively.

(1)

1979 c. 34. The Deregulation (Credit Unions) Order 1996 (S.I. 1986/1189) inserted sections 11B and 11C into the Credit Unions Act 1979. Section 11B provides that, where a credit union holds a certificate of approval under section 11C, section 11B(4) modifies section 11 by amending subsection (4) and inserting a new subsection (4A).

(2)

1965 c. 12. See the definition of “chief registrar”. Section 73 applies for the purposes of the Credit Unions Act 1979 by virtue of section 31(2) of that Act.

(3)

The sum £750 was inserted in section 9(1) by article 4 of the Credit Unions (Increase in Limits of Shareholding, of Deposits by persons too young to be members and of Loans) Order 1989 (S.I. 1989/2423).
