IM 50

The CCAB comment after Wilkie is reproduced in Inspectors Manual para 50, but like the comment Richard reproduces, it is specific to the 183 day rule.. The next para in IM is 130, the one before is something like IM43. There is, IIRC, no statement in IM (at least in the public pages) about the 91 day test. I assume it is in paras 44-49, and that it gives further details on how to apply it in a range of cases.

Come to think of it, it is presumably possible to make a Freedom of Information request about whether the paragraphs exist, even if they aren't going to release what they say...
