(2) An immediate fine shall not exceed the maximum permitted under regulation 2 of Council Regulations 33 of 2002 (referring to section 34.3 (a) of Statute XI).

(3) An immediate fine shall be paid to the Clerk to the Proctors within two working days of the date of imposition, whether or not the student member intends to appeal.
