3.—(1) An attorney shall not be required to give notice under paragraph 1 to himself or to any other attorney under the power who is joining in making the application, notwithstanding that he or, as the case may be, the other attorney is entitled to receive notice by virtue of paragraph 2.

(2) In the case of any person who is entitled to receive notice under paragraph 1, the attorney, before applying for registration, may make an application to the court to be dispensed from the requirement to give him notice; and the court shall grant the application if it is satisfied—
