Explanatory Note

This Act of Sederunt makes amendments to the Rules of the Court of Session 1994 in consequence of the establishment of a procedure for building society special administration under the Banking Act 2009.

Paragraph 2(2) amends rule 74.32B so as to set down a procedure for making an application to the Court for the prior approval of a resolution for the voluntary winding up of a building society under section 88 of the Building Societies Act 1986. As a consequence, the heading to rule 74.32B is changed (paragraph 2(3)).

Paragraph 2(4) amends rule 74.49(2)(b) in relation to the time when a notice or document is delivered but not lodged with the Court on a non-business day.

Paragraph 2(5) inserts a new Part IX into Chapter 74 of the Rules. Paragraphs (1) to (3) of inserted rule 74.51 provide for the application, with appropriate modification, of Part VIII of Chapter 74 (bank administration procedure) to applications for a building society special administration order.
