Stuart - The requested information is already publically available on the Banks own website.

Here's the link:

If your interested, the second quoted section in your request is what's known as a 'saving provision' - common in a wide range of different types of 'governing document' to enable a governing body to still act, in circumstances where there may be doubt over the proper appointment of individual Directors/Governors, or when the governing body is not at full complement.
