(5) Where an applicant under this section was not, at any time during the
base period, engaged in the production of bountiable refined tin at the
premises to which the application relates, the Minister shall refuse to

        being carried on by the person who applied for the registration of the
        premises; or

   (c)  if any conditions have been prescribed under sub-section (1), that
        bountiable refined tin that is being produced at registered premises
        is being produced otherwise than in accordance with those conditions,
        the Minister may, by notice in writing served either personally or by
        post on the occupier of the premises, and, if the occupier is not the

        person, cancel the registration of the premises.
