(a)the Scottish Ministers may by notice in writing require the Commissioners at their own expense to remove the tidal work or any part of it and restore the site of the tidal work to its former condition; and if on the expiration of 30 days from the date when the notice is served upon the Commissioners they have failed to comply with the requirements of the notice, the Scottish Ministers may execute the works specified in the notice; or
(b)if it appears to the Scottish Ministers urgently necessary to do so, they may themselves remove the tidal work or part of it and restore the site to its former condition,
and any expenditure incurred by the Scottish Ministers in so doing shall be recoverable from the Commissioners as a debt.
