(2)Where any alien carries on or purports or continues to carry on, or is a member of a partnership or firm which carries on, or which purports or continues to carry on any trade or business in any name other than that under which the trade or business was carried on on the fourth of August nineteen hundred and fourteen, he shall, for the purpose of this section, be deemed to he using or purporting or continuing to use a name other than that by which he was ordinarily known on the said date.

(3)A Secretary of State may, if it appears desirable on special grounds in any particular case,-grant an exemption from the provisions of this section, but shall not do so unless he is satisfied that the name proposed to be assumed, used, or continued is in the circumstances of the case a suitable name.

(4)Nothing in this section shall—

(a)affect the assumption or use or continued assumption or use of any name in pursuance of a royal licence ; or

(c)prevent the assumption or use by a married woman of her husband's name.
