(a)in an area in which there is in force an order under section 26 above limiting the number of licences for fishing with instruments of that description, if his name and address are entered on the licence in accordance with the following provisions of this Schedule and he is not the holder of another licence to use an instrument of that description in that area ;

(b)in any other area, if his name and address are so entered or when using the instrument to which the licence relates he is accompanied by the licensee ; or

(c)in the case of any area, if the water authority direct that owing to special circumstances he is to be so treated.

10The name and address of a servant or agent may be entered on a licence by an employee of a water authority authorised to do so or by the licensee or an agent who has been appointed by the licensee to act for the purposes of this paragraph and whose appointment, together with his name and address, has been notified to the water authority.

11The date of entry in the licence shall be stated in the licence at the time of the making of the entry, and within twenty-four hours of the making of an entry by a licensee or his agent a copy shall be sent to the water authority, together with a fee of 20p for every name and address entered.

12The name and address of a servant or agent may be removed from, or inserted in, a licence on payment of a fee of 20p for each removal or insertion or, where a name and address are inserted in substitution for a name and address removed, for each substitution.

13The number of servants or agents whose names may at any time be entered on a licence shall not exceed twice the number of persons who in the opinion of the water authority are required to work at one time the instrument to which the licence relates or, where the applicant for the licence notifies the authority at the time of the application that he proposes to take part in working the instrument, one less than twice that number.

14Any person who, with intent to deceive, enters on a licence more names than are permitted by paragraph 13 above or states falsely the date of entry in a licence is guilty of an offence.
