(b)any gain which accrued as respects the original long-term capital asset or the original long-term capital liability for the accrual period in which the euroconversion of that asset or liability took place shall, without prejudice to regulation 2 of the Exchange Gains and Losses (Deferral of Gains and Losses) Regulations 1994(1) (settlement and replacement of debts), be deemed to be unrealised, and sections 139 to 143 (apart from section 143(7)) of the Finance Act 1993 shall have effect accordingly.
