(a)that no child in the care of a local authority is for the time being accommodated in the home, or

(b)in the case of a school registered by virtue of section 1(3) above, that it is no longer a school to which that provision applies,

the authority shall give to the person carrying on the home notice that the registration of the home has been cancelled by the authority as from the date of the notice.

(2)If on any annual review under section 5 above, or at any other time, it appears to the responsible authority that a registered home is being carried on otherwise than in accordance with the relevant requirements, they may determine that the registration of the home should be cancelled.

(3)The responsible authority may at any time determine that the registration of a home should be cancelled on the ground that the person carrying on the home has been convicted of an offence under this Act or any regulations made under section 8 below, or on the ground that any other person has been convicted of such an offence in relation to the home.

(a)a notice that they propose to cancel the registration on such date as may be specified in the notice, being a date at least twenty-eight days after the date of the notice, or
