  7 u s e 499b.        revocation or finding of flagrant or repeated violation of section 2, if

                       satisfactory to the Secretary as assurance that such licensee's business
                       will be conducted in accordance with this Act and that the licensee will
                       pay all reparation awards, subject to its right of appeal under section
  Ante, p. 675.        7 ( c ) , which may be issued against it in connection with transactions

                       a reduction in the amount of the bond. A licensee who is notified by
                       the Secretary to provide a bond in an increased amount shall do so
                       within a reasonable time to be specified by the Secretary, and if the
                       licensee fails to do so the approval of employment shall automatically
                       terminate. The Secretary may, after thirty days' notice and an oppor-
                       tunity for a hearing, suspend or revoke the license of any licensee
                       who, after the date given in such notice, continues to employ any
                       person in violation of this section."
