10Obligations as to delivery of policies and of copies of rules and amendments thereof

(1)A collecting society shall supply a member, free of charge, with the following, that is to say—

(a)on his insuring with the society, with a printed policy signed by two of the committee of management and by the secretary, or, if the society has been granted a certificate under section ten of the Act of 1923 exempting it from the requirement imposed by this paragraph to supply a policy, with a copy of the rules of the society ;

(b)on written demand by him if a copy of the rules of the society has not previously been supplied to him, with a copy of the rules of the society ;

(c)on written demand by him if the rules of the society have been amended since he has been supplied with a copy thereof and a copy of the amendment has not previously been supplied to him, with a copy of the amendment;

and shall, on demand by him and on payment by him of such sum not exceeding one shilling as the society may require, supply a member to whom a copy of the rules of the society has been supplied with a further copy thereof.

(2)Where an amendment of the rules of a collecting society modifies the terms or conditions of any insurance issued by the society by way of increase of premiums or reduction of benefit, the society shall, within two months from the date on which the amendment is registered pursuant to section thirteen of the Act of 1896, either—

(a)serve every member of the society with a notice containing a statement which, in the opinion of the Commissioner, sufficiently sets forth the effect of the amendment; or

(b)publish such a statement by advertisement in two or more of the newspapers in general circulation in every county where the society carries on business. A member served with a notice under paragraph (a) of this subsection shall be regarded for the purpose of the preceding subsection as if he had been supplied with a copy of the amendment in question.

(3)For the purposes of this section, a policy shall be deemed to be signed by a person if it bears a stamped, printed or lithographed reproduction of his signature placed thereon with his authority.
