(b) to require production for inspection, of any scrap metal kept at that place and any record which the dealer has in his or her possession.

(2) A magistrate may grant, on application by a senior police officer, a closure order or, where such an order has already been granted, an application to extend a closure order in relation to a place, subject to the following conditions-

(a) the senior officer reasonably believes that the trader is encouraging, supporting or facilitating the trade in stolen metal whether knowingly or not, and

(b) in his or her view such closure is necessary for the prevention of theft or handling of stolen goods or for the further investigation of those offences.

(3) For the purposes of this section a person shall be deemed as carrying on business as a scrap metal dealer if-

(a) a place in that area is occupied by him or her as a scrap metal store, or

(b) no place is occupied by him or her as a scrap metal store, whether in that area or elsewhere, but he or she has his or her usual place of residence in that area, or
