  2. (ca) an order made under Article 44C(3)(a) or 54(3)(a) of that Order;'.

No. 154, in page 120, line 36, at end insert— '(2B) Where the court imposes a fine on the offender under paragraph (2)(a)— (a) if he has not attained the age of 16, it shall order that the fine be paid by the parent or guardian of the child instead of by the child, unless it is satisfied that there is good reason for not so doing; and (b) if he has attained that age but has not attained the age of 18, it may so order. (2C) A fine ordered under paragraph (2B) to be paid by a parent or guardian may be recovered from him by distress, or he may be imprisoned in default of payment, in like manner as if the order had been made on the conviction of the parent or guardian of the offence for which the juvenile justice centre order was made. (2D) A parent or guardian may appeal to a county court against an order under paragraph (2B).".'.—[Mr. Browne.]
