    (1) HFC Bank plc and Beneficial Bank PLC that they desire to obtain the Parliamentary powers specified therein, to be operative in Scotland and elsewhere, and that it is expedient that such powers should be conferred by one enactment because it is necessary to provide for the uniform regulation in Scotland and elsewhere of the affairs of HFC Bank plc, Beneficial Bank PLC and Household International (U.K.) Limited, and

    (2) the United Reformed Church Trust acting on behalf of the United Reformed Church in the United Kingdom and the Congregational Union of Scotland Nominees Limited acting on behalf of the Congregational Union of Scotland that they desire to obtain the Parliamentary powers specified therein, to be operative in Scotland and elsewhere, and that it is expedient that such powers should be conferred by one enactment because it is necessary to provide for the uniform regulation in Scotland and elsewhere of the affairs of the United Reformed Church in the United Kingdom and the Congregational Union of Scotland
