Supplementary provisions as to dividend

This section has no associated Explanatory Memorandum

41.—(1) In the calculation and distribution of a dividend the postal administrator shall make provision for—

(a)any debts which appear to the postal administrator to be due to persons who, by reason of the distance of their place of residence, may not have had sufficient time to tender and establish their proofs;

(b)any debts which are the subject of claims which have not yet been determined; and

(c)disputed proofs and claims.

(2) A creditor who has not proved their debt before the declaration of any dividend is not entitled to disturb, by reason that they have not participated in it, the distribution of that dividend or any other dividend declared before their debt was proved, but—

(a)when they have proved that debt they are entitled to be paid, out of any money for the time being available for the payment of any further dividend, any dividend or dividends which they have failed to receive; and

(b)any dividends payable under sub-paragraph (a) of this paragraph shall be paid before the money is applied to the payment of any such further dividend.

(3) No action lies against the postal administrator for a dividend; but if the postal administrator refuses to pay a dividend the court may, if it thinks just, order the postal administrator to pay it and also to pay, out of the postal administrator’s own money—

(a)interest on the dividend, at the rate for the time being specified in section 17 of the Judgments Act 1838(1), from the time when it was withheld; and

(b)the costs of the proceedings in which the order to pay is made.

(1)

1838 c. 110, as amended by the Civil Procedure Acts Repeal Act 1879, section 2, Schedule 1, Part 1, the Statute Law Revision (No. 2) Act 1888, S.I. 1993/564, article 2, S.I. 1998/2940, article 3(a),(b) and (c).
