Provided that a party shall not be entitled to give evidence by written statement if such evidence is submitted with the notice of appeal or claim or the statement of his case or in accordance with a direction under regulation 33.

(3) The tribunal may receive evidence of any fact which appears to the tribunal to be relevant.
