Paragraph 18: Time for representations and consideration of case under Part 2

347.Sub-paragraph (2) ofparagraph 18 reduces the time permitted for the requested person to make representations to 4 weeks. (This has the consequence of equalising the time for the making of representations with the time within which the Secretary of State is required to consider them).

348.Sub-paragraph (3) ofparagraph 18 provides that if the person has consented to his extradition Ministers are not required to wait until the end of the permitted period (i.e. 4 weeks) to order extradition.
