exchanges; and for purposes connected therewith.
1 Exemption from obligation to prepare share certificates, etc

[P1976/47/1]
A company of which shares or debentures are allotted or debenture stock is
allotted to a recognised clearing house or a nominee of a recognised clearing
house or of a recognised investment exchange, or with which a transfer is
lodged for transferring any shares, debentures or debenture stock of the
company to such a clearing house or nominee, shall not be required in
consequence of the allotment or the lodging of the transfer to complete and have
ready for delivery, in pursuance of section 68(l) of the Companies Act 1931, the
certificates of the shares or the debentures or the certificates of the debenture
stock, as the case may be.1

2 Official seals for sealing share certificates, etc

[P1976/47/2]
(1) A company which has a common seal may have, for use for sealing
securities issued by the company and for sealing documents creating or
evidencing securities so issued, an official seal which is a facsimile of the
common seal of the company with the addition on its face of the word
“Securities”. The official seal when duly affixed to a document has the
same effect as the company’s common seal.2

(2) A company which was incorporated before the date when this Act comes
into force and which has such an official seal as is mentioned in the
preceding subsection may use the seal for sealing such securities and

documents as are there mentioned notwithstanding anything in any
instrument constituting or regulating the company or in any instrument
made before that date which relates to any securities issued by the
company; and any provision of such an instrument which requires any
such securities or documents to be signed shall not apply to the securities
or documents if they are sealed with that seal.

3 Acquisition and disposal of securities by trustees and personal

[P1976/47/5]
A trustee or personal representative shall not be chargeable with breach of trust
or, as the case may be, with default in administering the estate by reason only of
the fact that —

to acquire in connection with the trust or estate, paid for the
securities under arrangements which provide for them to be
transferred to him from a recognised clearing house or a nominee
of a recognised clearing house or of a recognised investment
exchange but not to be so transferred until after payment of the
price; or3

(b) he has, for the purpose of disposing of securities which he has
power to dispose of in connection with the trust or estate,
transferred the securities to such a clearing house or nominee
