Amendments made: 96, in schedule 4, page 29, line 11, at end insert—

“In section 93 of the 1992 Act (effect of amalgamation), after subsection (2) insert—

“(2A) Where—

(a) subsection (1) applies, and

(b) at the time of the amalgamation there has already been a renewal date under section 84 for one or more of the amalgamating unions,

the first renewal date under that section for the amalgamated union is the earliest date after that time which would (but for the amalgamation) have been the first renewal date for any of the amalgamating unions.””

This amendment deals with the effect of an amalgamation of unions on the new opt-in rules. It fixes the “first renewal date” for the amalgamated union where at least one of the amalgamating unions has already had a renewal date at the time of the amalgamation.
