The companies act says:

114 Register to be kept available for inspection
(1) A company’s register of members must be kept available for  
(a) at its registered office, or
(b) at a place specified in regulations under section 1136.

Unfortunately I can't find section 1136 - I'll keep looking.

Talking from a personal and an OSM-F Board member point of view, I  
would strongly support the list being downloadable, so long as this  
doesn't violate any other legislation.  The Companies Act specifies  
things you can and can't do with the membership list - you can't, for  
example, give it to another person.  Any request needs to by made to  
the company (the OSM-F) directly.
