Re Oxford House (Wimbledon) Management Co Ltd; Kaye and another v Oxford House (Wimbledon) Management Co Ltd and others

Company – Shareholder. The claimant shareholders had been entitled to a declaration that resolutions that they had passed at a general meeting convened to consider those resolutions, which had been passed after the chairman had announced that the resolutions would not be considered and the meeting closed, were effective. The Chancery Division so determined holding, amongst other things, that whilst the board had been entitled to refuse to allow a meeting to be convened if a particular resolution was not intended to be moved, or if it might not properly be moved, once a general meeting had been convened to consider the resolutions, the only people who could then consider the proposed resolutions included in the notice convening the meeting were the members of the company.
