LLD 5.1 Application and purpose

Application

LLD 5.1.1R

This chapter applies to the Society.

LLD 5.1.2R

A contravention of the rules in this chapter does not give rise to a right of action by a private person under section 150 of the Act (Actions for damages) and each of those rules is specified under section 150(2) of the Act as a provision giving rise to no such right of action.

Purpose

LLD 5.1.3G

  1. (1)

    protecting policyholders against the risk that former underwriting members may not be able to meet any liabilities to carry out contracts of insurance that they underwrote at Lloyd's; and

  2. (2)

    enabling the FSA to impose requirements under section 320(3) of the Act (Former underwriting members) if it considers this appropriate to protect policyholders.
