(2) A departure direction that is cancelled under the provisions of paragraph (1) shall cease to have effect on the first day of the maintenance period during which the Department is given or sent, or becomes aware of, the information which leads it to become satisfied that it is no longer appropriate for the departure direction to continue to have effect.
