Power of the Department to make new appointments

(2) A member of an appeal body shall not be deemed to be unable to carry out his duties or to have refused to do so, if he has indicated to the other members how he casts his vote for the purposes of regulation 17(1).

(3) Where a new member is appointed after a notice of appeal has been transmitted to the appeal body but before the body has reached a decision, the appeal body shall, notwithstanding any hearing or consideration which has already taken place, consider the appeal afresh in accordance with regulation 16.

(4) An appeal body shall be deemed to have reached a decision when a sufficient number of the members have given such indications to constitute a majority for the purposes of the provision, notwithstanding that any document embodying the decision has not been drawn up or signed by all or any of the members, or issued by the appeal body.
