(5)If, on the appeal against an assessment or an amendment of an assessment, it appears to the majority of the Commissioners present at the hearing that the assessment or amendment is wrong—

(a)because no, or a smaller, gross profit has accrued for the chargeable period in question; or

(3)The comparison of values and the substitution required by sub-paragraph (2) above shall, in the case of an appeal by a participator whose return relates both to gas and to other oil, be made separately for the gas and for the other oil.
