Status:

This is the original version (as it was originally enacted).

26Special contributions and power to borrow

(1)If it appears to the Board that payments in any financial year of the Board under section 28 below are likely to exhaust the Fund, the Board may, with the approval of the Treasury, levy special contributions from contributory institutions to meet the Fund's commitments in the year.

(2)Where, at the end of any financial year of the Board in the course of which special contributions were levied, moneys representing the whole or part of those contributions remain in the Fund, those moneys shall be repaid by the Board to the institutions from which they were levied pro rata according to the amount of the special contribution made by each of them.

(3)If in the course of operating the Fund it appears to the Board desirable to do so, the Board may borrow for temporary purposes up to a total outstanding at any time of £10 million or such larger sum as, after consultation with the Board, the Treasury may from time to time prescribe by order made by statutory instrument.

(4)A statutory instrument made under subsection (3) above shall be subject to annulment in pursuance of a resolution of either House of Parliament.

(5)Any amount borrowed by virtue of subsection (3) above shall be disregarded in ascertaining whether the amount standing to the credit of the Fund is such that the Board may exercise their power to levy further contributions under subsection (1) of section 25 above.
