Section 10: Old entries
48.This section requires that when the Clerk amends an entry in the register, the Clerk retains a copy of the original entry and any subsequent amendments for a period of five years from the date on which the last amendment is made.
49.Subsection (2) applies section 1(4) to old entries and allows the Clerk to choose the appropriate form that amended entries will be kept in. However, if the old entries are kept other than in documentary form, the old entries must, when printed or displayed, be able to show what they contain. Subsection (3) defines “old entries” as the original entry and any subsequent amended entry in the state in which it was before it was amended.
