  (a)   the President;

  (b)   an authorised member;

  (c)   an authorised officer.

  (2)   However, an authorised officer must not make a decision about giving leave, and must instead arrange for the President or an authorised member of the Tribunal to make the decision, if:

  (b)   a party to the proceeding applies to the officer to have the decision made by a member of the Tribunal.

  (3)   If an authorised officer decided whether to give a party to a proceeding leave to inspect a document produced under a summons:

  (b)   the Tribunal may reconsider the decision on such an application or its own initiative; and

  (c)   the Tribunal may make such order as it thinks fit in relation to the giving of leave to inspect the document.
