(a)who is shown as voting by proxy in the record kept under paragraph 3(4) of Schedule 4 in pursuance of an application granted on the grounds set out in paragraph 3(3)(b) and (c) (blindness or other disability, occupation, service or employment etc.) of that Schedule; or

(b)who immediately before the date of the commencement of Schedule 4 was entitled to vote by proxy for an indefinite period at local government elections in pursuance of an application granted on grounds corresponding to those set out in paragraph 3(3)(b) and (c) of Schedule 4.

for the purpose of determining whether there has been a material change of circumstances affecting the proxy applications.
