Abstract/Citation: Section 26 of the Provident Fund Ordinance, Cap 78(A) that is now in force gives the Lands Court the power to distribute the funds of a deceased member in accordance with the law that is now in force. The law that is now in force is not specifically stated. The new subsection (2) again gives the court power to deal with the share of a dependant after being satisfied that the change in the circumstance of that dependant warrants the variation of the order relating to the distribution of the fund in the first instance. The new subsection (3) sets out who the dependants are by referring us to the definition of "dependants" in the Workmen's Compensation Ordinance Cap 102. By applying this definition, the objective is to ensure that those who have been supported by the member during his lifetime will continue to be supported after his/her death.
