Marginal note:Extension of stay of proceedings

  •  (1) Where the administrator considers an extension of the thirty day period referred to in paragraph 7(1)(b) to be essential to the formulation of an arrangement between a farmer and the farmer’s creditors, the administrator may, subject to the regulations, extend that period for a maximum of three further periods of thirty days each.

    (2) Where

    • (a) there is an appeal under section 15 from a decision of the administrator not to extend a stay of proceedings, and
