(4) Subject to paragraphs (6) and (7) of this Rule, at least 14 days’ notice of the meeting shall be given to all creditors who are known to the postal administrator and had claims against the company at the date when the company entered postal administration unless that creditor has subsequently been paid in full; and the notice shall—

(a)specify the purpose of the meeting;

(b)contain a statement of the effect of Rule 26 (entitlement to vote); and

(c)contain the forms of proxy.

(5) As soon as reasonably practicable after notice of the meeting has been given, the postal administrator must have gazetted a notice which, in addition to the standard contents, must state—

(a)that a creditors’ meeting is to take place;

(b)the venue fixed for the meeting;

(c)the purpose of the meeting; and

(d)a statement of the effect of Rule 26 (entitlement to vote).
