(3)The Welsh Ministers may, by order, vary a boundary line to which a notice given under subsection (2) relates by substituting a new boundary line (whether or not consisting wholly or in part of the line of the water-course as altered) for so much of that boundary line as, before the alteration, lay along the line of the water-course.

(4)The Welsh Ministers must consult the Commission before making an order under subsection (3).

(5)The Welsh Ministers must, in such manner as they consider appropriate, publish notice of any order made under this section.
