(2)Rules under this section may, in particular, make provision about the form and content of communications.

(4)But subsection (3) does not prevent the FCA from making rules under subsection (1) in relation to a communication that would not contravene section 21(1) if made by a person other than an authorised person, without the approval of an authorised person, if the conditions set out in subsection (5) are satisfied.

(5)Those conditions are—
