The first two are fairly self-explanatory, but not the last.

Digging through emails, I found a link to
which clarifies that the article numbers are incorrect. However, the
proposal here doesn't fix them, but simply removes them entirely.
Furthermore, the first one (273) is only for public companies, so it's
not clear what's going on -  what was the thinking behind the original
intention to include 273 (and 274) in the first place, and given that
original intention, what's the thinking behind removing the
requirements now? I think this information would need to be provided
at the vote.


As an aside, "the Act" appears in the AoA without definition, whereas
the definition of "Companies Acts" is unused anywhere in the AoA :-)
