Every application for a License shall be submitted to the Board in duplicate in Form 1 set out in the Schedule.
Every such application shall be submitted to the Board at least forty days before the date upon which it is desired to commence a bookmaking business.
On receipt of any such application, the Board shall satisfy itself that the particulars required are set out with sufficient clarity and may return the application for amplification or amendment.
On receipt of any such application, the Board shall forthwith, at the expense of the applicant, advertise the same in the Gazette and one local newspaper.
Any person who wishes to object to the issue of a License shall make such objections in writing to reach the Board within twenty-one days of the publication of the advertisement in accordance with regulation 6 and shall set out the grounds therefor.
On receipt of any objection made in accordance with regulation 7, the Board shall forthwith send a copy of such objection to the applicant.
At least ten days before considering any application for a License, the Board shall give notice of the meeting of the Board at which any such application is to be considered, in such manner as it deems fit.
At any meeting at which an application is to be considered, the applicant and any person objecting in accordance with these Regulations may appear either personally or by counsel at the hearing and lead evidence in support of his application or objection, as the case may be.
At any meeting at which an application is to be considered, the Board shall have power to take evidence on oath and the chairman is hereby authorised to administer oaths for the purpose of this regulation.
