    How long ago was the appeal? Did you not pursue it to UT?

    You can take a companion to the face to face but they would ordinarily expect you to speak for yourself.

    What rules have changed? Not sure what you’re referring to there.

    Ordinarily an upper tribunal would not be an oral hearing and would be one judge sitting alone. It would only happen if you’d lost the first tier tribunal and had then appealed to UT an a point of law. Is that what happened?
