Correction of the register.

22.—(1) For the purpose of keeping the register correct the Council shall from time to time as occasion requires correct all verbal or clerical errors in the register, remove therefrom all entries therein procured by fraud or misrepresentation, enter in the register every change which comes to their knowledge in the addresses of the persons registered therein, and remove from the register the names of all persons who shall have died.

(2) For the purpose aforesaid the Council may at any time send by prepaid post to any person registered in the register a letter addressed to him at his address as stated in the register inquiring from him whether he has ceased to practise or has changed his address, and if no answer to such letter shall be received by the Council within six months after the posting of such letter the Council shall at the expiration of such six months remove the name of such person from the register.

(3) The Council may at any time on such terms and as from such date as they think proper restore to the register the name of any person whose name was removed from the register under this section and who satisfies the Council that he is still alive and entitled to be registered in the register.

(4) The Council may by regulations made under this Act delegate to the registrar all or any of their powers and duties under this section other than the power of restoring a name to the register.
