49.Subsection (2) applies section 1(4) to old entries and allows the Clerk to choose the appropriate form that amended entries will be kept in. However, if the old entries are kept other than in documentary form, the old entries must, when printed or displayed, be able to show what they contain. Subsection (3) defines “old entries” as the original entry and any subsequent amended entry in the state in which it was before it was amended.
