(2) If a justice of the peace, on sworn information in writing is satisfied that there is reasonable ground for entry into premises for any such purpose as is mentioned in paragraph (1) above and that either—

(a)admission to the premises has been refused, or a refusal is apprehended, and that notice of the intention to apply for a warrant has been given to the occupier; or
