(6.) Unless the Court otherwise orders, the date fixed for the hearing of the appeal shall be not less than thirty days after the service on the Commissioner of the notice of appeal.”.

2. After Regulation 16 the following regulation is added:—

Payment of compensation to trustees.

17.—(1.) In cases where the Act provides that any amount of compensation shall be paid to the Commissioner and invested or applied or dealt with by him in such manner as he thinks fit for the benefit of the persons entitled thereto, the amount may be paid to such trustee or trustees as the Commissioner may appoint and the amount so paid shall be held for the benefit of the person entitled thereto, upon such trusts as may be approved by the Commissioner.

(2.) Where any determination is varied by the Commissioner in pursuance of paragraph 9 of the First Schedule to the Act, any trust created under this regulation shall cease and determine as from the date of the variation, and any trust moneys then held shall be dealt with in such manner as the Commissioner directs;

Provided that the determination of a trust by operation of this sub-regulation shall not prejudice any right of action against a trustee in respect of any act or omission occurring prior to the date of the variation.”.
