Changes and effects yet to be applied to the whole Act associated Parts and Chapters:

Whole provisions yet to be inserted into this Act (including any effects on those provisions):

4(1)A building society shall include in or with every notice of its annual general meeting a merger statement with respect to any merger proposal, other than a proposal of which notice has already been given under this paragraph,—U.K.

(a)received by it during the period of 12 months ending with the ninth month of the last financial year of the society before that meeting; or

(b)treated by paragraph 3(3) above as having been received by it during the last three months of that financial year;

and the society may also include, under this sub-paragraph, a merger statement with respect to any proposal received, or treated as received, by it after the end of either period.

F1[(2)In any case where merger resolutions are to be moved at any meeting of a building society, every notice of the meeting shall have included in or with it—

(a)a merger statement with respect to any merger proposal, other than a proposal of which notice has already been given under this paragraph, received by it more than 42 days before the date of the meeting; and

(b)a transfer proposal notification with respect to any transfer proposal so received by it.

[F2(2A)Where a merger statement or a transfer proposal notification is required to be sent to a person in or with the notice of a meeting of the society under sub-paragraph (1) or (2)—

(a)in a case where notice of a meeting is given electronically to a person in accordance with paragraph 22A of Schedule 2, the merger statement or transfer proposal notification may be sent to him electronically only if it is sent to the same electronic address and at the same time as the notice;

(b)in a case where notice of a meeting is given on a web site in accordance with paragraph 22B of Schedule 2, the requirement to send the statement or notification shall also be treated as satisfied if the conditions set out in sub-paragraph (2B) are satisfied.

(2B)The conditions of this sub-paragraph are satisfied in the case of a merger statement or transfer proposal notification if—

(a)the society and that person have agreed that information that is required to be sent to him may instead be accessed by him on a web site;

(b)the agreement applies to the merger statement or transfer proposal notification in question;

(c)at the same time and in the same manner as the society notifies that person of the publication of the notice of the meeting, it notifies him of—

(i)the publication of the merger statement or transfer proposal notification on a web site,

(ii)the address of that web site,

(iii)the place on that web site where that statement or notification may be accessed, and how it may be accessed; and

(d)the statement or notification is published continuously on that web site throughout the period beginning when the person is notified in accordance with paragraph (c) and ending with the conclusion of the meeting.

(2C)Where, in a case in which sub-paragraph (2A)(b) is relied on for compliance with a requirement under sub-paragraph (1) or (2)—

(a)a statement or notification is published for a part, but not all, of the period mentioned in sub-paragraph (2B)(d), but

(b)the failure to publish it throughout that period is wholly attributable to circumstances which it would not be reasonable to have expected the society to prevent or avoid,

that failure shall not invalidate the proceedings of a meeting or prevent the requirements of sub-paragraph (2B) from being treated as fulfilled in relation to section 95(4)(c).]

(3)In this paragraph and paragraph 5 below—

  • transfer proposal” has the same meaning as in Part IA of Schedule 17;

  • transfer proposal notification” means a transfer proposal notification (within the meaning of that Part) required to be sent to members by paragraph 5B(1) of that Schedule.]
