This amendment will ensure that in the event that the amending Bill does not receive Royal Assent on or before 1 January 1989, dividends paid by early balancing companies during the period 1 January 1989 to the day the Bill receives Royal Assent will be subject to the same rules as dividends paid after the day on which Royal Assent is granted.
The second amendment will omit Part IV from the Bill.
