(b)that undue congestion of traffic or serious prejudice to the preservation of law and order has resulted from the existence of the track; or

(c)upon a report made to it by the accountant appointed under Schedule 8, or upon a refusal of that accountant to give such a certificate as is mentioned in paragraph 15 of that Schedule, that any totalisator on the track is not an apparatus such as is mentioned in paragraph 1 of that Schedule or that it has been maintained or operated otherwise than in accordance with that Schedule or regulations made under this Part; or

(d)that the holder of the licence has been convicted of an offence mentioned in Article 37(4)(b)
