(2)It shall be the duty of the Boards who effect any transaction in pursuance of paragraph 1 of this Schedule to notify any person who has rights or liabilities which thereby become enforceable as to part by or against one Board and as to part by or against another Board, and if such a person applies to the Minister and satisfies him that the division or apportionment operated unfairly against him, the Minister may give such directions to the Boards as appear to him appropriate for varying the division or apportionment.

(3)It shall also be the duty of the Boards to notify any person who has rights or liabilities which become enforceable as to part by or against one Board and as to part by or against another Board in consequence of a direction given by the Minister under sub-paragraph (2) of paragraph 1 of this Schedule.

(6)If at any stage of any court proceedings which have been instituted before the vesting date or later, but not more than five years after the vesting date, and which are proceedings to which a Board and a person other than a Board are parties, it appears to the court that the issues in the proceedings depend on any demarcation of boundaries or division or apportionment under the principal sections or this Schedule which the Boards have not yet effected, or raise a question of construction on those provisions which would not arise if all the Boards constituted a single person, the court may if it thinks fit on the application of a parity to the proceedings other than a Board hear and determine the proceedings on the footing that the Board or Boards who are parties to the proceedings represent and are answerable for all the Boards, and that the Boards constitute a single person, and any judgment or order given by the court shall bind all the Boards accordingly.

(7)It shall be the duty of each Board to keep any other of the Boards informed of any case where that other Board may be prejudiced by sub-paragraph (5) or sub-paragraph (6) of this paragraph,
