Pursuant to the information supplied to you on EFIS No. 114/2017 concerning the Law Society's press release dated 15th November 2017, the changes to the definition of a "clearing bank" in condition 1.1.1(b) of SCS have now been agreed between Oyez's representatives on the Joint Working Party and their Law Society counterparts.
