(c)the mission and pastoral committee shall send to the Commissioners and the interested parties a copy of any order made under this subsection.

(a)that the mission and pastoral committee should be informed in writing whether or not the interested party objects to the proposals within the period, not less than twenty-eight days after the service of the notice, specified in the notice,

(b)that, if the interested party does not inform the mission and pastoral committee as required by paragraph (a), that party will be deemed to have consented to the proposals, and
