(2)In section 67(2) the reference to the certificate of appointment issued under section 58 shall be construed as a reference to the order of the court appointing the person as curator bonis, tutor-dative, tutor-at-law or guardian under the 1984 Act, as the case may be.

(3)Section 60 shall apply to a person who has become a guardian to an adult by virtue of this schedule and who was a curator bonis, tutor dative or tutor-at-law to that adult; and, for the purpose of that application, for the reference in section 60(1) to a period in respect of which a guardianship order has been made or renewed there shall be substituted a reference to the period of 5 years from the relevant date or (in the case of a curator bonis who has under paragraph 1(2), became guardian to a person on his attaining the age of 16 years) from the date on which the person attained the age of 16 years.

(4)Section 60 shall not apply to a person who has become a guardian to an adult by virtue of this schedule and who was a guardian of that adult under the 1984 Act, in which case the powers shall continue until such time as they would have continued had he not become a guardian by virtue of this schedule to this Act.
