or such part thereof as aforesaid, shall be determined at the rate

for payment (hereinafter referred to as the "amount ranking for payment")
shall be calculated as follows-

calculated by multiplying the assessable amount of the claim by
the figure specified in relation to that bond in the second column
of that Schedule,
(2) in respect of claims arising out of any other loans the amount
ranking for payment shall be the assessable amount of the claim,
(3) in respect of claims arising out of trade debts arising out of con-
tracts subsisting on or before the 5th March 1941, the amount
ranking for payment shall be calculated by multiplying the assess-
able amount of the claim by 1.5,
(4) in respect of any claim arising out of any other obligation, the
amount ranking for payment shall be the assessable amount of
the claim.
10. The amount to be paid by the Administrator to a person who has
established to the Administrator's satisfaction a claim to which these Direc-
tions apply, shall, so far as practicable, bear to the amount of the distribut-
able balance the like proportion which the amount of that claim ranking
for payment bears to the total of the amounts ranking for payment of all
claims established pursuant to these Directions.

for distribution make an interim distribution therefrom to the persons or
any of them who at the date of such distribution and established claims to

able balance will not produce a dividend which can reasonably and convenient-
ly be distributed to all persons whose claims have been established he shall
consult the Treasury and shall dispose of such residue as the Treasury shall
direct.

to which these Directions apply to be submitted in such forms as may be pre-
scribed by the Board of Trade and within such times as shall be such
by the Treasury and shall dismiss any application which is not made in the
