This is the original version (as it was originally enacted).

Transfer schemes

13.—(1) This paragraph applies if the Regulations make provision designating a body (whether one established by the Regulations or one already in existence) in place of a body designated by earlier regulations under section 21; and those bodies are referred to as the “new body” and the “former body” respectively.

(2) The Regulations may make provision authorising the Department to make a scheme (a “transfer scheme”) for the transfer of property, rights and liabilities from the former body to the new body.

(3) The Regulations may provide that a transfer scheme may include provision—

(a)about the transfer of property, rights and liabilities that could not otherwise be transferred;

(b)about the transfer of property acquired, and rights and liabilities arising, after the making of the scheme.

(4) The Regulations may provide that a transfer scheme may make consequential, supplementary, incidental or transitional provision and may in particular—

(a)create rights, or impose liabilities, in relation to property or rights transferred;

(b)make provision about the continuing effect of things done by the former body in respect of anything transferred;

(c)make provision about the continuation of things (including legal proceedings) in the process of being done by, on behalf of or in relation to the former body in respect of anything transferred;

(d)make provision for references to the former body in an instrument or other document in respect of anything transferred to be treated as references to the new body;

(e)make provision for the shared ownership or use of property;

(f)if the TUPE regulations do not apply to in relation to the transfer, make provision which is the same or similar.

(5) The Regulations must provide that, where the former body is an existing body, a transfer scheme may only make provision in relation to—

(a)things done by or in relation to the former body in or in connection with the exercise of functions conferred on it by previous regulations under section 21; and

(b)functions of the body which are functions so conferred.

(6) In sub-paragraph (4)(f), “TUPE regulations” means the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006 (SI 2006/246).
