What are the legal exclusions?

To consent to nomination and agree to stand for election to the council of governors it is necessary to declare that you are not:

  • A person who has been adjudged bankrupt or whose estate has been sequestrated and (in either case) has not been discharged.
  • A person who has made a composition or arrangement with, or granted a trust deed for, his creditors and has not been discharged in respect of it.
  • A person who within the preceding 5 years has been convicted in the British Islands of any offence if a sentence of imprisonment (whether suspended or not) for a period of not less than 3 months (without the option of a fine) was imposed on him.
  • Excluded by any other provision detailed within the trusts constitution. A copy of the constitution can be downloaded here (for website only)
