7.  (1)  A member may resign his office at any time during his term of office, by giving notice in writing to the Secretary of State.

(2) Where an existing member is appointed to be the chairman, his original tenure of office shall terminate when his appointment as chairman takes effect.

(3) Where the Secretary of State is of the opinion that it is not in the interests of the Commission or the health service that a member should continue to hold office, he may terminate his tenure of office by giving him notice in writing to that effect.

(4) If a member fails to attend any meeting of the Commission for a period of three months the Secretary of State shall terminate that person’s tenure of office, unless he is satisfied that—

(b)the person in question will be able to attend meetings of the Commission within such period as the Secretary of State considers reasonable.

(5) Where a person has been appointed to be a member, and—

(b)he becomes disqualified for appointment under regulation 5, and notifies (as he should) the Secretary of State; or

(c)he becomes disqualified for appointment under regulation 5 and this comes to the attention of the Secretary of State otherwise than by the member’s notification, the Secretary of State shall notify him in writing of such disqualification,

and upon receipt of notification from the member or the Secretary of State, as the case may be, his tenure of office, if any, shall be terminated and he shall cease to act as such a member.
