Proceedings

14The quorum of Scottish Homes and the arrangements for its meetings shall be such as it may determine, subject to any directions given by the Secretary of State.

15(1)A member who is directly or indirectly interested in a contract made or proposed to be made by Scottish Homes, or in any other matter whatsoever which falls to be considered by Scottish Homes, shall disclose the nature of his interest at a meeting of Scottish Homes, and the disclosure shall be recorded in the minutes of the meeting.

(2)Such a member shall not—

(a)in the case of any such contract, take part in any deliberation or decision of Scottish Homes with respect to the contract; and

(b)in the case of any other matter, take part in any deliberation or decision of Scottish Homes with respect to it if Scottish Homes decides that the interest in question might prejudicially affect the member’s consideration of the matter.

(3)For the purposes of this paragraph, a notice given by a member at a meeting of Scottish Homes to the effect that he is a member of a specified body corporate or firm and is to be regarded as interested in any contract which is made with the body corporate or firm after the date of the notice, and in any other matter whatsoever concerning the body corporate or firm which falls to be considered by Scottish Homes after that date, shall be a sufficient disclosure of his interest.

(4)A member need not attend in person a meeting of Scottish Homes in order to make a disclosure which he is required to make under this paragraph, if he takes reasonable steps to secure that the disclosure is made by a notice which is taken into consideration at such a meeting.

16The validity of any proceedings of Scottish Homes shall not be affected by any vacancy among its members or by any defect in the appointment of a member or by any failure to comply with any requirement of paragraph 15 above.
