SECOND SCHEDULETransfer of property rights and liabilities from the Lord President of the Council to the Authority

1The property held immediately before the appointed day by the Lord President of the Council for the purposes of his activities under subsection (1) of section two of the Atomic Energy Act, 1946, and subsection (1) of section one of the Radioactive Substances Act, 1948, and the rights and liabilities enjoyed by him or incumbent on him immediately before the appointed day in connection with those activities are hereby transferred as from the appointed day to the Authority:

Provided that this paragraph shall not apply to any property, rights or liabilities acquired or incurred under any pension scheme.

2Any instrument shall, so far as may be necessary for or in consequence of the transfer effected by paragraph 1 of this Schedule, have effect as if references to, or which are to be construed as references to, the Lord President of the Council or any department or organisation maintained by him for the purposes of his functions under the Atomic Energy Act, 1946, and the Radioactive Substances Act, 1948, were or, as the case may require, included references to the Authority and their organisation.

3Anything in process of being done by or in relation to the Lord President of the Council immediately before the appointed day (and, in particular, legal proceedings then pending to which he is a party) may, if it relates wholly or partly to any property, rights or liabilities transferred by paragraph 1 of this Schedule, be continued by or in relation to the Authority or by or in relation to the Authority and the Lord President of the Council, as the case may be.

4A certificate issued by the Lord President of the Council that any property vested in the Lord President of the Council immediately before the appointed day was or was not transferred to the Authority by paragraph 1 of this Schedule shall be conclusive evidence that that property was or was not so transferred.
