(b)These additional operations of the Land Registry (being operations of a Department of the Government for which the Minister is responsible) are suitable to be financed by means of a trading fund and, in particular, to be so managed that the revenue of the fund would consist principally of receipts in respect of goods or services provided in the course of the additional operations in question, and the Fund should be extended to these additional operations; and

(c)The financing of these additional operations by means of a trading fund would be in the interests of the improved efficiency and effectiveness of the management of the additional operations.

(3) The Minister has, in accordance with section 2 of the 1973 Act and with the concurrence of the Treasury, determined that no Crown assets or liabilities, other than those already appropriated to the Fund are property attributable to the additional operations;

(4) In accordance with section 6(2) of the 1973 Act, a draft of this Order has been laid before the House of Commons and has been approved by a resolution of that House.

Now, therefore, the Minister in exercise of the powers conferred upon him by sections 1(1), 2(1) and 6(1) of the 1973 Act with the concurrence of the Treasury, hereby makes the following order:
