I have contacted them about this issue but their stance is that:

‘Once an appeal has been received it is usually the case that a decision has been made in accordance with s.16 or that the BA have failed to issue a decision within the requisite two-month period’. Note usually.

If the BA does not provide any evidence in respect of the substantive issue and should the appeal not be struck out then we would be required to seek a variation to the standard directions.

Based on this they advise that we should provide a submission within the 4 week timescale ~ even in the absence of a written notice.

Clarification on late appeals has also been sought.
