—(1)  Where a liquidator has in his hands or under his control —
(a)
any unclaimed dividend or other moneys which have remained unclaimed for more than 6 months from the date when the dividend or other moneys became payable; or
(b)
after making final distribution, any unclaimed or undistributed moneys arising from the property of the company,
he shall immediately pay those moneys to the Official Receiver to be placed to the credit of the Companies Liquidation Account and shall be entitled to the prescribed certificate of receipt for the moneys so paid and that certificate shall be an effectual discharge to him in respect thereof.
(2)  The Court may, at any time on the application of the Official Receiver, order any liquidator to submit to it an account of any unclaimed or undistributed funds, dividends or other moneys in his hands or under his control verified by affidavit and may direct an audit thereof and may direct him to pay those moneys to the Official Receiver to be placed to the credit of the Companies Liquidation Account.
(3)  The interest arising from the investment of the moneys standing to the credit of the Companies Liquidation Account shall be paid into the Consolidated Fund.
(4)  For the purposes of this section, the Court may exercise all the powers conferred by this Act with respect to the discovery and realisation of the property of the company and the provisions of this Act with respect thereto shall with such adaptations as are prescribed apply to proceedings under this section.
(5)  This section shall not, except as expressly declared in this Act, deprive any person of any other right or remedy to which he is entitled against the liquidator or any other person.
(6)  If any claimant makes any demand for any money placed to the credit of the Companies Liquidation Account, the Official Receiver upon being satisfied that the claimant is the owner of the money shall authorise payment thereof to be made to him out of that Account or, if it has been paid into the Consolidated Fund, may authorise payment of a like amount to be made to him out of moneys made available by Parliament for the purpose.
(7)  Any person dissatisfied with the decision of the Official Receiver in respect of a claim made in pursuance of subsection (6) may appeal to the Court which may confirm, disallow or vary the decision.
(8)  Where any unclaimed moneys paid to any claimant are afterwards claimed by any other person, that other person shall not be entitled to any payment out of the Companies Liquidation Account or out of the Consolidated Fund but such person may have recourse against the claimant to whom the unclaimed moneys have been paid.
(9)  Any unclaimed moneys paid to the credit of the Companies Liquidation Account to the extent to which the unclaimed moneys have not been under this section paid out of that Account shall, on the lapse of 7 years from the date of the payment of the moneys to the credit of that Account, be paid into the Consolidated Fund.
