(b)applies to the local education authority by whom the order was served for education to be provided for the child at a school not maintained by a local education authority,

(a)the parent applies for the child to be admitted to a school which is not maintained by a local education authority and in respect of which he makes no such application as is mentioned in subsection (1)(b) above, being a school different from the one named in the order; and

(b)as a result of the application the child is offered a place at a school which is suitable to his age, ability and aptitude,

the local education authority by whom the order was served shall at the request of the parent amend the order by substituting that school for the one previously named.
