Subject to the provisions of sub-clause (b) of this clause, the General Committee shall cause the title to all land (which is not vested in the Official Custodian for Charities) and all investments held by or in trust for the Association to be vested either in a corporation entitled to act as custodian trustee or in not less than three nor more than four named individuals (not being members of the General Committee) appointed by the General Committee as holding trustees. Holding trustees shall act in accordance with the lawful directions of the General Committee. PROVIDED THAT they act only in accordance with such lawful directions, holding trustees shall not be liable for the acts and defaults of members of the General Committee. Holding trustees may be removed by the General Committee at its pleasure and shall otherwise cease to hold office in accordance with the provisions of Clause 10 (e) above.
If a corporation entitled to act as custodian trustee has not been appointed to hold the property of the Association, the General Committee may permit any investments held by or in trust for the Association to be held in the name of a clearing bank, trust corporation or any stockbroking company which is a member of the International Stock Exchange (or any subsidiary of any such stockbroking company) as nominee for the General Committee and may pay such nominee reasonable and proper remuneration for acting as such.
