(1) The terms of a licensing scheme that—
(a) is proposed to be operated by a licensing body; and
(b) is proposed to apply generally or in relation to any description of cases—
may be referred to the Tribunal by—
(c) the operator of the proposed scheme; or
(d) an organisation claiming to be representative of persons claiming that they require licences in cases of a description to which the scheme would apply.
(2) The Tribunal shall first decide whether to entertain the reference and may decline to do so on the ground that the reference is premature.
(3) If the Tribunal decides to entertain the reference, it shall consider the matter referred and make such order, either confirming or varying the proposed scheme, either generally or so far as it relates to cases of the description to which the reference relates, as the Tribunal may determine to be reasonable in the circumstances.
(4) The order may be made so as to be in force indefinitely or for such period as the Tribunal may determine.
