(3)In respect of any determination made by the Board under section 5 above the tribunal shall not vary the Board’s determination unless it is satisfied that the Board—
(a)has exercised its discretion on a basis on which no reasonable determination could have been made; or
(b)has failed to take into account some material matter, or has taken into account some irrelevant matter, where in either case in acting properly the determination of the Board would or might have been significantly different:
Provided that this subsection shall not apply where the tribunal considers that, in all the circumstances of the case, not to vary the Board’s determination would or might result in an injustice to the applicant and would or might cause significant financial hardship.

(a)notice is given by a member of the General Synod in accordance with its Standing Orders that he wishes the rules to be debated,
(b)notice is so given by any such member that he wishes to move an amendment to the rules and at least twenty-five other members of the General Synod indicate when the amendment is called that they wish the amendment to be moved,
the rules shall for the purposes of subsection (6) above be deemed to have been approved by the General Synod without amendment.
(8)The M1Statutory Instruments Act 1946 shall apply to any rules approved by the General Synod under subsection (6) above as if they were statutory instruments and were made when so approved, and as if this Measure were an Act providing that any such rules should be subject to annulment in pursuance of a resolution of either House of Parliament.
