(a)to what trade effluents the byelaws will relate,

(b)that, at such place as may be specified in the notice, copies of the draft byelaws may be inspected free of charge, and may be obtained on payment of such charge not exceeding one shilling per copy as may be so specified, and

(c)that the local authority are prepared to receive and consider any representation with respect to the byelaws which may be made to them in writing by or on behalf of owners or occupiers of trade premises within the district of the local authority at any time during such period after the date of the publication of the notice, not being less than two months, as may be specified in the notice;

(2)the local authority, before making the byelaws, shall take into consideration any representation which they have undertaken to consider under the terms of the notice given by them as aforesaid and shall consult any interested body;

(3)if the Minister has, for the purposes of this Act, designated to the local authority any specified body of persons as being representative of the interests of the owners or occupiers of trade premises in the district of the local authority, or of any class of such owners or occupiers, the local authority shall, before making the byelaws, consult that body.
