(g)section 56 (power of registrar to petition for winding up);

(h)section 58 (instrument of dissolution); and

(i)section 59 (restriction on dissolution or cancellation of registration of society).

(5)The power to make an order under this section shall be exercisable by statutory instrument and no such order shall be made unless a draft of it has been laid before and approved by a resolution of each House of Parliament.

(6)In this section—

  • “modification” includes any additions and, as regards modifications of the statutory provisions relating to companies, any modification whether effected by any future Act or by an instrument made after the passing of this Act under an Act whenever passed; and
