(3)For subsections (4) to (5A) there shall be substituted the following subsections—

(4)Where a court, after consultation with a probation officer, a social worker of a local authority social services department or a member of a youth offending team, declares a person to be one to whom subsection (5) below applies—

(a)it shall remand him to local authority accommodation and require him to be placed and kept in secure accommodation, if—

(ii)it has been notified that secure accommodation is available for him;

(b)it shall remand him to a remand centre, if paragraph (a) above does not apply and it has been notified that such a centre is available for the reception from the court of persons to whom subsection (5) below applies; and

(c)it shall remand him to a prison, if neither paragraph (a) nor paragraph (b) above applies.

(4A)A court shall not declare a person who is not legally represented in the court to be a person to whom subsection (5) below applies unless—
