His reply shall be entered on the record.

(b) Counsel, if selected, shall be afforded reasonable time to consult with the detained person unless counsel has already done so prior to the time of the hearing or advises that no such time is desired. The person detained or counsel on his behalf may present any evidence relevant and material to a showing of cause why he should not be deported or excluded.

(c) If during the hearing it appears that there exists a reason in addition to those stated in the order of detention why the person named in the order should be deported or excluded, he shall be notified that such additional charge will be placed against him and he shall

(c) An employee of the Canal Zone Government or of the Panama Canal Company who is summoned to appear at an exclusion or deportation hearing shall be excused from duty for the purpose of complying with the summons as oficial business, and the time during which he is absent from regular duty on such official business shall not be charged to his leave. § 59.56 Report and recommendation in
