(ii)An amalgamation or transfer shall not become effective unless sanctioned by the Commissioner, and the Commissioner, before sanctioning any such amalgamation or transfer, shall hear any representations made on behalf of any class of persons (including the employees of any society concerned) who allege that they are adversely affected by the amalgamation or transfer, and may require as a condition of his sanction that the terms of the amalgamation or transfer shall be modified in such manner as he may consider just.

(2)The said section as so modified shall apply to the transfer by a collecting society of its engagements to an industrial assurance company as if in subsection (2) thereof for the words " any other registered society" there were substituted the words

an industrial assurance company; and section seventy-one of the Friendly Societies Act, 1896, so far as it enables a registered friendly society to amalgamate with or transfer its engagements to a company, shall not apply to a collecting society.
