(c)to vary or remove any undertaking in a licence,

the holder shall return that licence to the traffic commissioner for him to make the appropriate addition, alteration, variation or removal before returning it to the holder.

(4) In the event of the traffic commissioner deciding to vary one or more conditions attached to a licence under section 16(1), so reducing the maximum number of vehicles which may be used under the licence below the number of discs which have been issued to the holder, the holder shall return to that commissioner such number of discs as will leave the holder with only the same number of discs as is equal to the reduced maximum number of vehicles.
