(1)In subsection (1) of section 16 of the 1965 Act (grounds for cancellation of registration) as it applies to credit unions—

(a)in paragraph (c)(i) the reference to violation of any of the provisions of the 1965 Act shall be construed as including a reference to violation of any of the provisions of this Act; and

(b)in paragraph (c)(ii) the reference to the fact that neither of the conditions in section 1(2) of that Act is fulfilled shall be construed as a reference to the fact that there is no longer a common bond between the members of a credit union;

and section 17(1) of that Act (suspension of registration on grounds which would justify cancellation) and section 18 of that Act (appeals) shall apply accordingly.

(2)A petition for the winding up of a credit union may be presented to the court by the appropriate registrar if it appears to him that—

(a)the credit union is unable to pay sums due and payable to its members, or is able to pay such sums only by obtaining further subscriptions for shares or by defaulting in its obligations to creditors ; or

(b)there has been, in relation to that credit union, a failure to comply with any provision of. or of any direction given under, this Act or the Industrial and Provident Societies Acts 1965 to 1978 ; or

(c)there is no longer a common bond between the members of the credit union;
