8.—(1) The Board may, by means of a bank overdraft or by such other means, within such limits and subject to such conditions as may be approved by the [F1Department of Justice], temporarily borrow such sums as may be necessary for the purpose of defraying any expenses incurred by it under this Order.

(2) Any sum borrowed under paragraph (1) shall be repaid by the Board before the end of the financial year in which it is borrowed.

10.—(1) A member of the staff of the Board shall not be personally liable in respect of any act done by him in the execution of any statutory provision relating to a function of the Board and within the scope of his employment if he acted reasonably and in honest belief that his duty under the statutory provision required or empowered him to do it; but nothing in this paragraph shall be construed as relieving the Board of any liability in respect of acts of members of its staff.
