(a)which, before the date of the coming into force of this Order, was duly made to the Corporation and which has not been determined before that date, and

(4) Where notices, certificates, publicity or consultations have been, or are in the process of being, given or carried out in relation to an application before the day on which it is transmitted to the authority, paragraph (3) shall not be construed as requiring further notices, certificates, publicity or consultations solely because the application is treated as received by the authority from the applicant on that day.
