(b)the constable who made the previous requirement has reasonable cause to believe that the device used there has not produced a reliable indication of the proportion of alcohol in the breath of the person concerned.

(6)In subsection (3) (circumstances in which requirement to provide a specimen of blood or urine may be made)—

(a)in paragraph (b) (breath-testing device not available etc.) insert at the beginning “ specimens of breath have not been provided elsewhere and ”, and

(b)for “not be committing” substitute “ commit ”.

(11)In subsection (2) (grounds for detention) for “A person shall not be detained in pursuance of this section if it appears to a” substitute “ Subsection (1) above does not apply to the person if it ought reasonably to appear to the ”.
