17. (1) The Public Guardian must cancel the registration of an instrument as a lasting power of attorney on being satisfied that the power has been revoked-

(b) on the occurrence of an event mentioned in section 13(6)(a) to (d).

(a) the donor, and
(b) the donee or, if more than one, each of them.

18. The court must direct the Public Guardian to cancel the registration of an instrument as a lasting power of attorney if it-

(a) determines under section 22(2)(a) that a requirement for creating the power was not met,
(b) determines under section 22(2)(b) that the power has been revoked or has otherwise come to an end, or
(c) revokes the power under section 22(4)(b) (fraud etc.).

19. (1) Sub-paragraph (2) applies if the court determines under section 23(1) that a lasting power of attorney contains a provision which-

(b) prevents the instrument from operating as a valid lasting power of attorney.

(2) The court must-

(a) notify the Public Guardian that it has severed the provision, or
