2On issuing a licence to a person a licensing authority shall notify him of the effect of paragraph 1 above.

3If a licensing authority refuses an application for a licence, the authority shall give the applicant notice in writing of the reasons for the refusal.

4If a licensing authority varies or revokes a licence without the holder's consent, the authority shall give the holder notice in writing of the reasons for the variation or revocation.

5If within 28 days of receipt of a notice under this Schedule giving a licensing authority's reasons the person to whom it is given makes written representations to the authority concerning the matter to which the notice related, the authority shall constitute a committee to consider his representations.

6A notice under this Schedule giving a licensing authority's reasons shall state the effect of paragraph 5 above.

7Each licensing authority shall draw up and from time to time revise a panel of persons who are specially qualified in the authority's opinion to be members of committees constituted under this Schedule, and any such committee constituted by an authority shall be drawn from members of the authority's panel.

8If a licensing authority constitutes a committee, the authority shall appoint one of the members of the committee to be its chairman.

9It shall be the duty of the chairman—

(a)to serve on the person who made the representations a notice requiring him to state within 14 days of receipt of the notice whether he wishes to make oral representations to the committee ; and

(b)to serve on him, not earlier than the date of the notice under paragraph (a) above, notice of the place, date and time of the meeting of the committee.

10A notice under paragraph 9(b) above shall not specify a date for the meeting of the committee earlier than 21 days from the date of the notice, unless the person who made the representations has agreed to an earlier meeting.

11If he expresses a wish to- make oral representations, the committee shall afford him an opportunity of doing so, either in person or by any person authorised by him in that behalf.

12The committee shall consider—
