(b)the individual or partnership is carrying on a relevant qualifying activity, and

(2)The special threat conditions are that—

(a)the asset is provided or used to meet a threat which—

(ii)intends the asset to be used solely to improve personal physical security.

(3)If—

that other use is ignored for the purposes of this section.

(4)The fact that an asset improves the personal physical security of any member of the family or household of the individual concerned, as well as that of the individual, does not prevent this section from applying.

(5)If—

(b)the person incurring the expenditure intends the asset to be used partly to improve personal physical security,

this section applies only to the proportion of the expenditure attributable to the intended use to improve personal physical security.

(6)In this section “security asset” means an asset which improves personal security; and here “asset”—
