(b)any property, rights or liabilities which are designated, or are of a description designated, by a relevant body after the making of a PPP agreement as key system assets in accordance with the terms of, or by an amendment made to, the PPP agreement,

but does not include any property, rights or liabilities which, in accordance with the terms of, or by an amendment made to, the PPP agreement, have for the time being ceased to be designated as key system assets.

(2)No rights or liabilities under contracts of employment shall be designated as key system assets.

214Register of key system assets

(1)The relevant authority shall keep a register of all key system assets for the time being, except as provided by subsection (3) below.

(2)The register shall state—

(a)the date on which any designation of a particular key system asset, or of a description of key system assets, was made; and

(b)sufficient details of any particular key system asset, or any description of key system assets, designated as such to enable the key system assets to be identified.

(3)The register need not contain an entry in respect of any particular key system asset or description of key system assets if the relevant authority, with the consent of the PPP company concerned, keeps the requisite copy documents available for inspection by the public at all reasonable hours free of charge.

(4)For the purposes of this section the “requisite copy documents”, in the case of any particular key system asset or description of key system assets, are copies of—

(a)the document which contains the designation under paragraph (a) or (b) of section 213(1) above, and

(a)a PPP agreement is or has been entered into, and

(b)the PPP company or the relevant authority, or a subsidiary of the PPP company or relevant authority, enters into arrangements with another person (a “PPP related third party”)—

(i)which do not constitute a PPP agreement, but

(ii)which involve the provision of property or rights for use for the purposes of or otherwise in connection with the PPP agreement,

subsection (3) below applies.

(3)Where this subsection applies, the relevant authority, or a subsidiary of the relevant authority, may enter into an agreement with the PPP related third party for the purpose of enabling the property or rights in question to be designated as, and to be, key system assets as if—

(a)the agreement between the relevant authority or subsidiary and the PPP related third party were a PPP agreement, and

(b)the PPP related third party were the PPP company under that agreement.

216Protection of key system assets

(1)If and to the extent that key system assets are property or rights, a PPP company shall not, without the consent of the relevant authority,—

(a)transfer or agree to transfer, or create or agree to create any security over, any of those key system assets or any interest in, or right over, any of those key system assets; or

(b)create or extinguish, or agree to create or extinguish, any interest in, or right over, any of those key system assets.

(2)If and to the extent that key system assets are liabilities, a PPP company shall not, without the consent of the relevant authority, enter into any agreement under which any such liability is released or discharged or transferred to some other person.

(3)Any transaction which is entered into in contravention of subsection (1) or (2) above shall be void.

(4)No execution or other legal process may be commenced or continued, and no distress may be levied, against any property which is, or rights which are, key system assets.

(5)Where a PPP agreement makes provision for or in connection with the transfer to a successor body at any time—

(a)of any shares in a PPP company, or

(b)of any key system assets,

the relevant authority shall ensure that the PPP agreement includes provision specifying, or providing for the determination of, the amounts which are to be paid in respect of those shares or key system assets.

(a)a relevant body;

(b)a PPP company; or

(c)a PPP related third party.

(7)Any reference in this section to a PPP company or PPP related third party includes a reference to a body or person which has been or is to be such a company or party.

(8)In this section “security” has the meaning given by section 248(b) of the [1986 c. 45.] Insolvency Act 1986.
