(8) More than eight weeks after the date of M’s death, P may, after applying for additional statutory paternity pay (birth) under paragraph (1), withdraw that application, vary the date (if in the future) on which P wishes the additional statutory paternity pay period (birth) in respect of C to begin, or (before such period has begun), vary the date on which it is expected that E’s liability to pay additional statutory paternity pay (birth) will end, by notice in writing to E given—

(a)if withdrawing an application, at least six weeks before the date of which P has informed E pursuant to paragraph (1)(a), or

(b)if varying the date on which P wishes the additional statutory paternity pay period (birth) in respect of C to begin, at least six weeks before the earlier of the date varied or the new date, or

(c)if varying the date on which it is expected that E’s liability to pay additional statutory paternity pay (birth) will end, at least six weeks before the earlier of the date varied or the new date, or

(d)in a case where it was not reasonably practicable to give notice in accordance with sub-paragraph (a), (b) or (c), as soon as is reasonably practicable.

(9) When E has been provided with all of the information and the declaration referred to in paragraph (1) (together with, if applicable, what E has requested under paragraph (3)), E must, within 28 days, confirm the date on which the additional statutory paternity pay period (birth) in respect of C begins or began and the date on which E’s liability to pay P additional statutory paternity pay (birth) ends, by notice in writing to P.
