Thanks. I'd forgotten the details of that one. The introduction of new evidence was allowed "in the interests of justice". So in exceptional cases, which that one was, it is allowed. Are you aware of any others?
The bounce.co.uk Appeal was the opposite. The Appeal Panel didn't allow the submission of new evidence, because they didn't consider that anything newly submitted was in the interests of justice or raised exceptional circumstances. They did comment that they looked at the submissions, in order to determine whether it fell within the "interests of justice/exceptional circumstances" criteria but as nothing did it wouldn't have changed their view of the original DRS decision resulting in a transfer to the Complainant.
