(2)If—

(a)the result of the poll under subsection (1) above shows that the requisite majority of registered producers is in favour of the proposal that the property, rights and liabilities of the Board should be transferred as mentioned in that subsection; and

(b)at any time before the appointed day a resolution is passed by the Board incorporating the terms of that proposal and confirming the Board's approval of it, the property, rights and liabilities of the Board shall on that day and by virtue of this Act become the property, rights and liabilities of such person or persons respectively as are specified in the resolution.

(4)Paragraphs 25(b), 25A to 29 and 79 of, and the First Schedule to, the Scheme shall apply in relation to the poll under subsection (1) above as they apply in relation to polls held under the Scheme, except that the reference in paragraph 29(2) to the number of registered producers voting in favour of or against the amendment or revocation of the Scheme shall be construed as a reference to the number of registered producers voting in favour of or against the proposal that the property, rights and liabilities of the Board should be transferred as mentioned in subsection (1) above.

(5)The Board shall cause the poll under subsection (1) above to be taken as soon as practicable after the passing of this Act, and if the result of the poll under that subsection is such that subsection (2) (a) above does not apply, the Board may at any time before the appointed day cause a further poll or polls of registered producers to be taken under this section; and subsections (1) to (4) above shall apply in relation to any such further poll as if it were the poll required to be taken under subsection (1) above.
