173.Section 12 of the Tribunals, Courts and Enforcement Act 2007 sets out what the Upper Tribunal can do where it finds that a decision involved an error of law in an appeal under section 11 of that Act: it may set aside the decision and if so, section 11 sets out the further options as to how to proceed. In effect section 81(3) applies this to appeals to the Upper Tribunal from the Education Tribunal under section 81.
