What do you wish to know?
You can apply to revoke the trademark due to non use but this can only occur if it has been at least 5 years since the trademark was registered. An application for revocation can be made at any time after the trade mark has been registered for at least five years with the earliest date of revocation being the day following the fifth anniversary of the registration date. If you want to make an application for revocation, then you must file a TM26(N), Application to revoke a registration or a protected international trade mark (UK) for reasons of non-use accompanied by a £200 fee. It must state the dates between which it is alleged the trade mark has not been used: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/application-to-revoke-a-trade-mark-for-reasons-of-non-use

Yes they can unless as I say it has been more than 5 years from the registration. I trust this assists
