So to write 'in section 2' I would say 'in \S 2'
for 'in subsection 4.2' would I then say 'in \S\S 4.2'? or just 'in \S 4.2'? Thanks

You're much better off doing something like this so that you don't have to keep track of the numbering yourself:

Ah, but your question seems to be more about the *notation* used to indicate sections. To answer your question, I think you would use only ONE \S symbol, even for a subsection. Two symbols : \S\S is use to refer to *multiple* sections. E.g. You might say something like: \S\S 4.24.6. It's the equivalent of writing p. 46 to indicate a particular page and pp.4663 to indicate a range of pages.
