(2)In relation to a person sentenced to borstal training, the reference in subsection (1) of this section to the term of his sentence shall be construed as a reference to the period during which, under section forty-five of the Prison Act, 1952, he may be detained in a borstal institution; and nothing in that subsection shall be construed as affecting the period during which a person so sentenced is liable to supervision under the said section forty-five.
