(3) Within 10 days of receiving a notice given under paragraph (1), or within such longer period as the Board may in all the circumstances allow, the member concerned may appeal to the Board against the decision of the Chief Constable as set out in the notice by sending written notice of his appeal to the Board.

(b)the expiration of the period afforded for making comments if none have by then been received.

(6) Where a member has been given notice under paragraph (1), and either –
