and shall cause a notice of the application to be published in one or more local newspapers circulating within the limits of supply of the applicants and of any other water undertakers who will be affected by the proposed order, and, where the applicants are a local authority empowered by a local Act or an order confirmed by Parliament to supply water, or a company, board, or persons so empowered, and the application is for an order authorising the taking of water from a source, or for the suspension or modification of a restriction or obligation as respects the taking of water from a source or the discharge of compensation water, the applicants shall, in addition, cause a notice of the application to be published in the London Gazette.
