This section has no associated Explanatory Notes

2(1)The property, rights and liabilities that may be transferred by a nuclear transfer scheme include—

(a)property, rights and liabilities that would not otherwise be capable of being transferred or assigned by the transferor;

(b)property acquired, and rights and liabilities arising, in the period after the making of the scheme and before it comes into force;

(c)rights and liabilities arising after it comes into force in respect of matters occurring before it comes into force;

(d)property situated anywhere in the United Kingdom or elsewhere;

(e)rights and liabilities under the law of a part of the United Kingdom or of a place outside the United Kingdom; and

(f)rights and liabilities under an enactment, Community instrument or subordinate legislation.

(2)The transfers to which effect may be given by a nuclear transfer scheme include transfers of interests and rights that are to take effect in accordance with the scheme as if there were—

(a)no such requirement to obtain a person’s consent or concurrence,

(b)no such liability in respect of a contravention of any other requirement, and

(c)no such interference with any interest or right,

as there would be, in the case of a transaction apart from this Act, by reason of a provision falling within sub-paragraph (3).

(3)A provision falls within this sub-paragraph to the extent that it has effect (whether under an enactment or agreement or otherwise) in relation to the terms on which the transferor is entitled or subject to anything to which the transfer relates.

(4)Sub-paragraph (5) applies where (apart from that sub-paragraph) a person would be entitled, in consequence of anything done or likely to be done by or under this Act in connection with a nuclear transfer scheme—

(a)to terminate, modify, acquire or claim an interest or right; or

(b)to treat an interest or right as modified or terminated.

(5)That entitlement—

(a)shall not be enforceable in relation to that interest or right until after the transfer of the interest or right by the scheme; and

(b)shall then be enforceable in relation to the interest or right only in so far as the scheme contains provision for the interest or right to be transferred subject to whatever confers that entitlement.

(6)Sub-paragraphs (2) to (5) have effect where shares in a subsidiary of the transferor are transferred—

(a)as if the reference in sub-paragraph (3) to the terms on which the transferor is entitled or subject to anything to which the transfer relates included a reference to the terms on which the subsidiary is entitled or subject to anything immediately before the transfer takes effect; and

(b)in relation to an interest or right of the subsidiary, as if the references in sub-paragraph (5) to the transfer of the interest or right included a reference to the transfer of the shares.
