(a)to supply the Commission with copies of schemes for the administration of a charity made otherwise than by the court,

(b)to notify the Commission of any change made with respect to a registered charity by such a scheme, or

36Claims and objections to registration

(b)apply to the Commission for it to be removed from the register.

(2)Provision may be made by regulations made by the Minister as to the manner in which any such objection or application is to be made, prosecuted or dealt with.

(3)Subsection (4) applies if there is an appeal to the Tribunal against any decision of the Commission—
