(b) who is an enemy subject,

any property, real or personal, shall, within one month after the commencement of this regulation, or, if the property comes into his possession or under his control after the commencement of this regulation, then within one month after the time when it comes into his possession or under his control, by notice in writing communicate the fact to the Public Trustee appointed in pursuance of the Trading with the Enemy Act 1914-1916, and shall furnish the Public Trustee with such particulars in relation thereto as the Public Trustee requires.

“(2) In the case of—

“(3) The Minister of State for Trade and Customs may by order vest in the Public Trustee any property of an interned person or deportee, and upon the making of the order, the property shall be dealt with in the same manner as property of enemy subjects vested in the Public Trustee under the Trading with the Enemy Act 1914-1916, and the provisions of that Act shall apply mutatis mutandis to the property as if it were property vested in the Public Trustee under that Act.

“(4) Any person who contravenes or fails to comply with the provisions of this regulation shall be guilty of an offence.”
