or by sending copies to some members in accordance with subsection (2)(a) and submitting a copy or copies to other members in accordance with subsection (2)(b).
(3) The company must send or submit the copies (or, if copies are sent or submitted to members on different days, the first of those copies) not more than 21 days after it becomes subject to the requirement under section 309 (members' power to require circulation of written resolution) to circulate the resolution.
(4) The copy of the resolution must be accompanied by guidance as to—
(a) how to signify agreement to the resolution (see section 313 (procedure for signifying agreement to written resolution)), and
(b) the date by which the resolution must be passed if it is not to lapse (see section 314 (period for agreeing to written resolution)).
(5) In the event of default in complying with this section, a contravention of these Regulations is committed by every officer of the company who is in default.
(6) A person who commits the contravention referred to in subsection (5) shall be liable to a level 2 fine.
(7) The validity of the resolution, if passed, is not affected by a failure to comply with this section.
