19. Power to Minister to direct audit of trust accounts

    (1) The Minister may, in any case where he is of opinion that for the protection of the public, or the creditor of a licensee, it is desirable so to do, by notice in writing appoint an auditor, at the expense of the licensee, to arrange for the audit of the trust account of the licensee in respect of the period specified in the notice and to prepare and deliver to the Minister a report on the audit of the trust account.

    (2) The auditor so appointed has, in respect of the trust account, the same powers as the powers conferred upon the Auditor General by the Financial Administration and Audit Act 1985.
