It is important that your appeal is lodged before 4pm on 1st April and we will contact you when we have received further guidance from the Government as to when the appeals are able to be held.  We will contact you again regarding sending in any further evidence you wish to submit at this point.

Many thanks for your co-operation at this difficult time.
