Revised legislation carried on this site may not be fully up to date. Changes and effects are recorded by our editorial team in lists which can be found in the ‘Changes to Legislation’ area. Where those effects have yet to be applied to the text of the legislation by the editorial team they are also listed alongside the legislation in the affected provisions. Use the ‘more’ link to open the changes and effects relevant to the provision you are viewing.
This section lists the changes and effects yet to be applied to the whole Act, associated Parts and Chapters where applicable. This includes any insertions of whole new Parts, Chapters or provisions yet to be inserted into this Act. These effects are included in this view as they may be (but won’t necessarily be) relevant to the specific provision that you are viewing.
Whenever the balances in the hands of the Governor and Company of the Bank of England of sums issued for the payment of dividends and terminable annuities on account of the National Debt due and not demanded are reduced to a less sum than one hundred thousand pounds, the said Governor and Company shall certify the amount of deficiency to the Commissioners of the Treasury, and the Commissioners shall as often as they may judge expedient direct the issue out of the [F1National Loans Fund] of a sum not exceeding the amount required to raise the said balances to the sum of one hundred thousand pounds; and within thirty days after the expiration of every quarter an account shall be taken of the lowest amount of the balances in the hands of the said Governor and Company on the same account; and it shall be lawful for the Treasury, if they think fit, to require the Bank of England to repay to the account of the Comptroller of the Exchequer opened in the books of the said Bank any sum by which the said balances may exceed one hundred thousand pounds.
Annotations are used to give authority for changes and other effects on the legislation you are viewing and to convey editorial information.
