whatsapp KCS-content UK property backers pulling out Tags: NULL Sunday 27 February 2011 11:59 pm More than a third of lenders who backed UK property have pulled out since 2007, according to a new report from CB Richard Ellis (CBRE). The property consultancy says there are 107 senior lenders with a commercial real estate loan book in the UK, but only 69 are still actively lending. The growing shortage of debt to the property sector is expected to get worse in the next year, with the introduction of Basel III rules on banking capital. CBRE predicts non-traditional lenders such as insurance companies will become more involved in the sector. whatsapp Share Read This NextNew England Patriots’ Cam Newton says no extra motivation from Mac Jones’SportsnautRicky Schroder Calls Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl ‘Ignorant Punk’ forThe WrapCNN’s Brian Stelter Draws Criticism for Asking Jen Psaki: ‘What Does theThe WrapDid Donald Trump Wear His Pants Backwards?

According to the officials, however, reducing the length of the torch relay would have little impact on cost but would in turn require a huge effort in dealing with sponsors and local governments.Talks on how to simplify the event in various locales appear to be progressing with local organizing bodies.Since the postponement, organizers have sought to maintain the basic integrity of the original plan, in terms of giving priority to the roughly 10,000 individuals selected to run with the flame and the local landmarks the torch was due to pass.

The Charity Commission is encouraging charity trustees to share their views on the regulator’s future after its funding was cut by 33% in real terms as part of the government’s review of public spending.The Commission estimates that the cuts are likely to lead to a loss of 140 full time equivalent posts.In the latest edition of its newsletter, CC News, the Commission invites trustees to take part in an online consultation launched in October as part of a strategic review. Dame Suzi Leather, Charity Commission chair, said: “I urge trustees to have their say on how charities are regulated in the years ahead. As the people ultimately responsible for running charities, trustees have a direct interest in the future of the Commission. The strategic review is likely to see the Commission changing quite considerably and it is important that process is informed by the needs and concerns of trustees.”The consultation, which is available online, asks respondents to say which they consider to be the key risks facing the charitable sector over the next five years and to identify what the Commission’s regulatory focus and priorities should be.The online consultation closes on 14 January 2011.http://charitycommissionreview.blogspot.com 21 total views, 1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Tagged with: Charity Commission Law / policy Management Howard Lake | 3 November 2010 | News Charity trustees asked for views on Charity Commission’s future AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis

Late Bhupinder, who was married to the respondent no. 1 on December 12, 2004, died on May 21, 2015. They have a son together. Both of the respondent widow’s parents passed away. It is her case that she has no independent source of earning and she and her son are completely dependent on the earnings of the petitioner father-in-law.Thus, she filed proceedings under Sections 19 and 22 of Hindu Adoption and Maintenance Act, 1956 with seeking grant of maintenance of Rs.1.5 lakh per month for herself and Rs.50,000 for her son, before the Family Court.The claim was resisted by the petitioner father-in-law who alleged that he was paying maintenance to the respondents and has provided accommodation. He also claimed an expenses of Rs.90,000 is incurred by him so as to meet day-to-day requirements, educational expenses etc.The Family Court in an order dated January 28, 2020, granted maintenance of Rs.40,000 per month to respondent no.1 and Rs.30,000 per month to respondent no.2 son.JudgmentPetitioner’s counsel Advocate Bipin Joshi referred to Section 19 of the Act and submitted that the maintenance ought to have been claimed by the respondent no.1 only after demonstrating that she was unable to maintain herself from her own earnings or from the estate of her parents. Moreover, presuming that the respondents are entitled for maintenance, still fact remains that exorbitant maintenance is awarded, as the Court below have failed to consider the liability of the petitioner to maintain himself, who was a cancer patient, his aged wife, his other son and his family, Adv Joshi argued.On the other hand, Advocate GL Bajaj appeared on behalf of the respondent widow and contended that the family court’s order is based on the admissions as are traced in the written statement as to income of the petitioner. Adv. Bajaj relied on the Income-tax return submitted by the petitioner for the assessment year 2018-2019.Finally after hearing all submissions, Court noted-“At the outset, it is required to be submitted that the plain reading of Section 19 of the Act contemplates that the respondents have every right to claim the maintenance after the death of the husband from the estate inherited by her father-in-law i.e. the present petitioner. That proviso to Sub-Section (1) of Section 19 contemplates that the respondent has to demonstrate that she is unable to maintain herself. It is in this eventuality she can claim maintenance from the estate of her husband, still fact remains that the said burden can be discharged by respondent no.1 at an appropriate stage. The object with which the provision is made in the statute book for grant of interim maintenance cannot be ignored.”Justice Sambre noted that the Family Court has relied on the statement made in the written statement by the present petitioner that the income per month from the HUF property is Rs.1,28,000.Moreover, Court observed-“Apart from above, the Court cannot be oblivious to the fact that the income of the petitioner for the assessment year 2018-2019 as was reflected in the income-tax return was Rs,74,87,007. That being so, it cannot be at this stage presumed that the maintenance is disproportionate to the legal source of income of the petitioner. Rather the maintenance awarded to the respondent no.1 to the tune of Rs.40,000 and to respondent no.2, grandson of Rs.30,000 appears to be justified, considering the income drawn by the Petitioner as reflected in the hereinabove.”Thus the petition was dismissed.Click Here To Download Judgment[Read Judgment] Next Story

Energean, DEPA sigh agreement for commercial operation of EastMed pipeline. (Courtesy: David Mark/Pixabay.) Energean and the Public Gas Corporation of Greece (“DEPA”) have agreed to cooperate to further support the EastMed Pipeline Project. Ahead of the Intergovernmental Agreement on the EastMed Pipeline, to be signed later today by the Ministers of Cyprus, Greece and Israel responsible for Energy, Energean and DEPA have signed a Letter of Intent (“LoI”) for the potential sale and purchase of 2 BCM natural gas per annum from Energean’s gas fields offshore Israel, where Energean is investing $1.7 billion for the development of the Karish & Tanin fields through the FPSO “Energean Power”.DEPA, as a 50% shareholder of the “NATURAL GAS SUBMARINE INTERCONNECTOR GREECE-ITALY-POSEIDON S.A.” (“IGI Poseidon”) – a Joint Venture with Edison S.p.A – is developing the EU Project of Common Interest (PCI) EastMed Pipeline and is a leading player in natural gas supply and retail activities in the Greek and S. E European markets and in the development of major natural gas related infrastructure projects with the objective of enhancing the security and diversification of supply of Greece and the broader region.Additional details, including terms, delivery points, gas composition, the shipper of the EastMed pipeline etc. will also be agreed and detailed in the GSPA.Mr. Konstantinos Xifaras, CEO of DEPA, stated: “With the agreement we have signed today – the first agreement for the commercial use of the EastMed pipeline – we are taking a decisive step for the project’s commercial viability and its realization. With the present LoI, DEPA expresses its intention to buy 2 BCM of gas, which corresponds to 20% of the EastMed’s initial capacity. Thus, a major producer of East Mediterranean gas (Energean) and a key distributor of gas in South East Europe (DEPA) are joining forces to ensure the success of the pipeline.DEPA is steadily expanding its international trade activities and is developing, along with international partners, infrastructure projects that guarantee diversification of energy sources and security of supply in both Greece and Europe. By systematically strengthening its international role, our company is becoming a key player in the energy developments of the wider region.”Mr. Mathios Rigas, CEO of Energean, stated: “The agreement with DEPA is an important development in the context of the EastMed pipeline project, which now has not only the support of Governments and the EU but is also attracting commercial interest from buyers and sellers of gas in the region. The EastMed pipeline provides Energean with another monetization route for its strategy to fully utilize the Energean Power FPSO that has an 8 BCM/y capacity and further allows us to continue the exploration and development of our 9 licenses offshore Israel.“We are very pleased to have signed the LOI with DEPA which is the first commercial agreement for the EastMed pipeline and look forward to further assisting the development of the project, which will substantially benefit the economies, the security of supply and the consumers of the Eastern Mediterranean and Europe”.

Matthews, a candidate in the upcoming by-election for VP for Graduates, told Council, “This isn’t a nice thing to do, but it is the right thing to do.” A motion of censure, whilst not officially defined in any of OUSU’s governing documents, is generally taken to mean an official condemnation of the person in question if passed. If those censured ever run for an OUSU position again, they must also mention the censure on their nominations and disclosures form.”Matthews went on to explain to Cherwell, “Students deserve the best from their elected representatives, so it is absolutely right that when officers fail to live up to expectations, they are held to account by OUSU Council. Handover is an issue I have particularly noted failings in over the past five years, which is why I made clear in Michaelmas that those who failed to adequately hand over their duties would be censured. It may not be easy, or even nice, but it is the right thing to do.” Teriba disputed the motion, telling members of Council, “I don’t accept the facts as Jack has laid them out.” She argued that she had in fact made reasonable attempts to provide adequate handover. She pointed out that she had attended the general handover meeting, but that her successor, Henna Shah, of Regent’s Park, failed to turn up. It was unclear at Council which of Teriba or Shah was to blame for failing to set up a one-on-one handover meeting. In the process of debate, Teriba proposed a procedural motion to split up the motion of censure. The procedural motion passed, causing the three ‘resolves’ clauses to be voted on independently. Council voted overwhelmingly to pass the first clause, which resolved to “remind the Executive Officers of their duties to adequately handover to their successor upon completing their term in office.” The second clause to censure Annie Teriba passed with 28 votes for, 27 against, 11 abstentions and three spoiled ballots. The third clause regarding Alba Kapoor passed with 58 votes in favour, four against, four abstentions, and three spoiled ballots. Voting took place through a secret ballot, as requested by Nick Cooper, VP-elect for Graduates.Henna Shah, the current OUSU Access and Admissions Officer explained, “I think this motion demonstrates how important handovers are to the smooth running of our Student Union, particularly in an area as crucial as access. I think it also highlights how important it is for anyone who represents students to respect what those students decide in a democratic context, such as in OUSU Council, and it is this kind of a lack of respect for students’ opinions that results in disengagement from the Student Union.” Teriba and Kapoor could not be reached for comment. Adam Roberts, who ran for President in last term’s OUSU elections, commented to Cherwell, “A panel of OUSU’s Complaints Committee recommended that the motion be postponed; whether they were right to or not, I think the proposer and the chair did the right thing in respecting that decision. I don’t personally welcome the motion at all. Council can debate what it likes, but I hope it thinks hard about the motion and throws it out when it returns. Steering Committee will have to look at the motion afresh if it’s proposed again for the next meeting, but we don’t yet know whether they’ll decide to refer it to a working group for a preliminary discussion.” Matthews told Cherwell, in regards to the motion being withdrawn, “The motion was withdrawn due to a procedural irregularity completely beyond my control – it has nothing to do with the content of the motion itself. Once this matter has been resolved, the motion will come back to a future meeting of OUSU Council.” He went on to defend the motion, saying, “Out of respect for the importance of due process, and for the benefit of the welfare of all those involved, I will not be drawn into a trial executed by the press or social media. This is a matter for Council to decide upon, with the facts being presented, and discussion properly mediated. I wholeheartedly stand by my decision to bring this motion to Council – the place which not only has the right, but also the responsibility, to make these resolutions so fundamental to the preservation of our democratic system.” After the motion was withdrawn, OUSU Council considered an unrelated motion of censure, against two members of the Part Time Executive. Council subsequently voted to censure former Access and Admissions Officer Annie Teriba and former BME Officer Alba Kapoor. The motion of censure was proposed again by Jack Matthews, and seconded by Maryam Ahmed. The reason given for censure was the failure of both officers to “provide adequate handover” to their successors. In 7th Week Council of last term, they committed to provide such handover and agreed “to be censured” if they failed to do so. The motion of censure proposed that as of 3rd Week Council this term, they had not done so and thus deserved to be censured. A motion of no confidence in Trinity 2014’s Returning Officer (RO), Alex Walker, was withdrawn from OUSU Council last Wednesday.The motion was withdrawn by proposer Jack Matthews and seconder Will Neaverson before the meeting. Cherwell understands that the motion is intended to be brought back to OUSU Council in 7th Week. The motion originally called for OUSU “to have no confidence in Alex Walker, Wadham College, the former Returning Officer, Trinity Term 2014”. It went on to “mandate the President to inform Council so that Council might consider expelling Alex Walker,” if Walker asked to resume his membership of OUSU. The motion additionally proposed mandating OUSU President Louis Trup to inform the University Proctors of Council’s decision and to remind them that “Council still wish for the Proctors to resolve this important issue.”A copy of the agenda for Wednesday’s OUSU Council, which was later replaced, indicated that, “Following a complaint, the Chair of Council will propose a procedural motion to postpone this motion, so that the matter be reconsidered by Steering Committee on Thursday 26th February.” This was later updated to read, “At the request of the proposer and the seconder, this motion has been withdrawn.”Walker told Cherwell, “I don’t quite know why Jack is so intent on pursuing this nasty little vendetta, and I don’t particularly care. Doubtless, it will buy Jack an extra few column inches to support what he is pleased to call his political career. Their motion is factually incorrect, omits vital information, is totally misleading, and most of all, just plain silly. I’m not a particular fan of the nauseating Jack Matthews Show, and since my resignation from OUSU I have been better off for its absence. I will now, like every other student at this university, continue to ignore student politicians like Jack and get on with my life. Jack’s existence may, as it has for the last decade, revolve around throwing stroppy tantrums in OUSU; mine most certainly does not.“ Matthews told Council, “Because of an ongoing complaint, the motion has been withdrawn.” He added that he wanted “to say to Council that the motion will come back to Council once the irregularity is ironed out”.
