in the course of any business of a class specified in the order.

(2)An order made under this section shall provide—

(a)for enabling premises used for purposes for which registration is required by the order to be registered under section 16 before the date when subsection (1) of that section becomes applicable to them by the order : and

(b)in relation to premises used for those purposes before that date, for excluding or restricting the power of the local authority to refuse applications for registration.

(3)The purposes for which registration is required by an order made under this section may include any purpose for which, apart from the order, registration would be required under section 16.

(4)Any such order—

(b)section 16(1), as having effect by the order, shall not, so far as it relates to registration for purposes regulated by the local Act provisions, apply to that district until the Secretary of State, on the application of the local authority, declares it to be in force there.

(6)Where on an application made by a local authority under subsection (5) the Secretary of State declares section 16(1) to be in force in the authority's district, then, upon the declaration taking effect, such of the local Act provisions referred to in subsection (5) as may be specified in the declaration shall be repealed or, as the case may be, shall be repealed as respects the authority's district

(7)Any premises which immediately before the repeal of those provisions were registered under them for any of the purposes for which premises become registrable by virtue of the relevant order made under this section shall be deemed to have been registered under section 16 for the purpose in question.
