(2) Where a District Judge or magistrate makes an order under subsection (1) he shall immediately notify the Registrar who shall cause the person so detained to be brought before a judge as soon as practicable, and in any event within 48 hours, and inform the Secretary for Justice of the time and place at which that will be done.
