A lawyers' seminar to be held in Manchester on 22 February will outline for the first time details of draft proposals to bring co-operative law into line with company legislation. The event aims to bring together practitioners handling co-operatives' work to discuss a new Co-operatives Act. This will take the place of Industrial and Provident Society legislation, originally passed in 1852 and last amended nearly 30 years ago. 'Co-operative Legal Action Now' is open to all lawyers for £20 and to Co-operative Law Association members for £10. It will take place at the head office of the Co-operative Bank, 1 Balloon Street, Manchester. Contact Malcolm Lynch, secretary, Co-operative Law Association on: 0113 242 9600.
