(i) required by the order, and

(ii) within that person’s knowledge,

(c) where another interest in the shares or debentures subsisted at any time during the period specified in the order when the person’s own interest subsisted, to give such particulars of that other interest that are—

(ii) within that person’s knowledge,

(d) where that person’s interest is a past interest, to give those particulars, that are within his or her knowledge, of the person who held that interest immediately after him or her.
