(a)the period of 28 days starting with the day on which the copy was served on the person concerned; or

(b)such other period as the Secretary of State may by order specify.

(9)Where the Competition Appeal Tribunal specifies as a date by which the penalty, or a portion of the penalty, is to be paid a date before the determination of the application under this section it may require the payment of interest on the penalty, or portion, from that date at such rate as it considers appropriate.
