Chapter 3: Powers of the Secretary of State
Section 893: Power to make provision for effect of registration in special register
1163.This is a new provision, which provides power for the Secretary of State to make an order providing that, if a charge is registered in another register (for example, the register of floating charges to be established under the Bankruptcy and Diligence etc (Scotland) Bill), then the registrar may not register it, but it will be treated as if it had been registered in accordance with the requirements of Part 25. The power may only be exercised if appropriate information-sharing arrangements have been made between the registrar and the person responsible for the other register. This is to ensure that a person searching of the register will have access to information about charges registered in that other register.
Section 894: General power to make amendments to this Part
1164.This is a new provision providing the Secretary of State with a power to amend the provisions of Part 25.
